Photography

Kayako Mae

3-Dimensional & Artisans’ Works

Michael Magrath

Reflecting early years in the building trades, Magrath brings a practical, craftsman like approach to sculptural work. Coming up at a time when figurative sculpture was not widely practiced or taught, he built his practice in a number of rich sculptural environments, including Reed College, London, Rome, and the Florence Academy of Art, ultimately earning his MFA at the University of Washington in Seattle.   He has taught at the Art Academy of London and was an instructor in Sculpture and Public Art at UW for 7 years.  He has been teaching drawing and sculpture at Gage Academy since 2004 and directs the Magrath Atelier a multiyear sculpture intensive at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle.  His approach is thus a fusion between traditional observational technique and contemporary conceptual concerns.

Magrath has received numerous awards and commissions, including the 1998 IFRAA Best Religious Art, the 2008 ARC Salon Best Sculpture Award and the UW Medal of Honor Memorial in 2007.  Recent clients include Microsoft, Dwayne and Terese Clarke, and the City of Seattle. www.magrathsculpture.com.

Calligraphy

Jocelyn Curry

Jocelyn Curry, a native Seattleite, is a career calligrapher and illustrator who appreciates the broad variety of artwork now included under the category of “Calligraphy.” Her own training in historical styles began in 1984 and within a few years she was accepting commissions and branching out into non-traditional, expressive calligraphic work. For many years she worked with graphic designers and greeting card companies to create lettering and illustrations for applied use. In judging the work of her colleagues and students of calligraphy at all levels, she looks for interest or meaning in the work through choice of letterforms, media, careful crafting, and strong design be it quiet or bold. www.jocelyncurry.com
