Rodrigo Valenzuela is a Seattle-based, Chilean born photographer and videographer who combines the great outdoors with a sense of the man-made. His constructed still life photography conveys a sense of process, as well as illusion–capturing atmosphere and emotion in a single frame. Keep your eyes open for my coverage of this talented artist and visit his show at Bryan Ohno next month.
Claire Reiner is a writer, artist and recent graduate from the University of Washington’s School of Art with a major in Art History. She is interested in recent art movements and subcultures (1950s, 60s, 70s) and how they have shaped present perceptions and practices of art. She grew up in Southern California and moved to Seattle in 2010. She is quite influenced by the unique geography of both places and enjoys hiking and exploring the Pacific Northwest. Reiner covers visual art exhibits in Seattle and seeks to contribute to a profound and positive artistic community, as well as encourage people to come out and experience art moments for themselves. Reiner is also the Executive Assistant for VanguardSeattle and handles any press related needs.
