**RESCHEDULED** Spring Dreams Opening Reception **RESCHEDULED**

Due to community guidelines in the King County area and to help prevent the spread of CORONA 19 virus the events staff is looking into ways to hold this gathering virtually to continue building the community and supporting local artist. Please follow our Facebook, Instragram, and/or Twitter for updated on this and other events.

UPDATE: The curation staff is working on a series of videos to highlight the artist in this show.

The Vernal Equinox is on March 19th, and our art community will celebrate by imagining all the wonders Spring can bring from the tiny mushroom homes of our fae friends to majestic fluffiness of clouds unburdened by rain. Our bird friends have returned to the neighborhood, and bees are once again buzzing in the early spring flowers, but what might they get up to when humans aren’t observing them? Allow yourself a trip into the surreality of the natural world and all its possibilities within and beyond our capitalist hellscape.

Including light refreshments.

This group exhibition will run from March 22nd until April 15th and features artists including:

Kelly Dean Verity (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter)

Rebecca Martinez (Etsy.com/shop/ArgosSmargos)

Shannon Scott

Angela Williams (MorbidHeartDesigns.com)

This show will be open to the public during our regular gallery hours, and there will be a closing reception on April 15th from 5-7pm.

A Message From the President

The events committee met today to discuss ways to make our gallery more accessible, and have decided to go forward with a project to have virtual tours of the gallery livestreamed during opening & closing events. In order to avoid being haphazard about this, we’re postponing tonight’s closing reception and the opening reception for Spring Dreams.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but as is the motto around here goes “there are no art emergencies”; or at least not immediate ones. The health of our members as well as our resident & guest artists is important to us as well, and it makes sense to have another week to deal with the current public health crisis or at least understand it better.

Thank you for understanding and we hope to see you on the 18th (at 5pm) and/or 22nd (at 4pm) virtually or live in the gallery. Watch this space for more information about the virtual gallery tours.

Yours,
Rachel Setzer
President of Board of Directors & Gallery Curator

Odyssey Below the Tides Opening Reception

To submit work for this show see the public call for art here: https://forms.gle/WbCBqJC6boHu9iyu7

This time of year it rains so much that there might as well be an entire ocean under our feet. It leads a body to wonder what’s really out there in the deeps. For this show we will feature 2D and 3D work depicting seamonsters, seascapes, and the general mystery of Davy Jones’s Locker.

This group exhibition will run from February 16th until March 11th and features artists including:

Amy Muse
Larry Parker
Steven J Miljavac (StevenMiljavac.com)
RebelDog Studio (RebelDogStudio.com)
Braden Duncan (ClockworkArt.com ClockworkArt)
Angela Williams ( MorbidHeartDesigns.com)
Julie Yasny
Jessica Havens (RavenMadDesigns.com)
Rachel Setzer (Setzer Studio Arts)
Amanda Drewniak (www.amandadrewniak.com)

The opening reception will include light refreshments and an opportunity to contribute to the Tidal Artist Haven Cooperative Painting.

Making Time Opening Reception

Time is a fundamental aspect of human existence, but it is so amorphous and mysterious that everyone relates to it differently. How we relate to it changes every second of every day from the point we are aware of time, until the point where it stops being relevant. The means by which it is measured and what it means has changed so much throughout human existence, that just about every culture relates to time differently. Much of the industrialized world is driven by strict linear time, but cultures less dependent on industry have a more cyclical understanding of time.

This exhibition will remain up until the closing reception on February 13th. See our main fb page or website for gallery times.

Date: January 19, 2020
Time: 6:00pm-9:00pm
Location: Tidal Artist Haven, 1533 NE 145th St. Seattle, WA 98125

January Call for Art: Making Time

This is the call for art, for information about the opening reception go here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1504075896424589/

Time is a fundamental aspect of human existence, but it is so amorphous and mysterious that everyone relates to it differently. How we relate to it changes every second of every day from the point we are aware of time, until the point where it stops being relevant. The means by which it is measured and what it means has changed so much throughout human existence, that just about every culture relates to time differently. Much of the industrialized world is driven by strict linear time, but cultures less dependent on industry have a more cyclical understanding of time.

In choosing or composing your submissions for this show, please consider the following ideas: How do you relate to time as an artist? What do you think time is? What is it about? How do you measure and experience time? Is time Real? What will happen to your art over time? What is the best way for art to communicate across long stretches of time?

Fees: $10 per accepted piece. If you cannot afford the Showing Fee, it may be possible to have it waived. (Showing Fee does not apply to Tidal Artist Haven members and resident artists.) If a piece sells, TAH will collect a 30% commission.

Submission guidelines:
*2D and 3D works accepted (it may also be possible to screen video artwork)
*2D art MUST BE WALL READY. We will not be attaching wires or brackets to your work, and dislike hanging canvases that have no hanging hardware. If you need help making your pieces wall ready, special arrangements can be made. We will do our best to accommodate display requirements of 3D works that cannot be hung on a wall.
*Accepted works must be delivered to Tidal Artist Haven by January 15th at 10pm. If you cannot deliver your work, special arrangements can be made. Any unsold works may be picked up from Tidal Artist Haven after the closing reception on February 14th. If you cannot pick up your work by February 16th, special arrangements can be made, but we will not store work.
*Submit up to 5 pieces thru this webform: https://forms.gle/W8mZ7pcjg757M6dk7
*We will begin going thru submissions on January 6th
