Emile Pitre @ Lucid Gallery
Emile Pitre’s breathtaking images have been a hidden treasure, and this exhibit debuts his work within the public sector. His brilliant photography captures the small moments and splendors that can be easily missed rushing through the UW Seattle campus from day to day. This collection reflects glimpses of spring renewal through delicacy of nature and beauty and the appreciation for the details in life. His work includes a wide spectrum of photos from the contrast of colors and textures in nature, to flowers bathing in what is left of the morning dew, to birds in flight. The work he does inspires us to stop for a moment and take a moment to enjoy life and the beauty that surrounds us.

“Reanimated Remains: New Beauty in Old Things” @ Gargoyles
“Transformative Assemblage” by Yvette Endrijautzki. Found objects, gathered relics and separated pieces are brought together and survive to form a whole that launches you into an extraordinary carnival journey full of time warps, old memories, and pure magick!
Dean Summers will be showing “Mosaic Skulls.” Death is given new and sparkling life with these animal skulls encrusted in a dazzling mosaic of semi-precious stones and minerals.
Please join us for this amazing show!!! Wine, cheese and other goodies will be served. Also join us on May 18th and 19th for the University District Street Fair! We will have a live sculpting demo and live music for all to enjoy out in front of the shop!!!

Heather Rosenberry @ University Business Center
Heather Rosenberry is a fine artist living in Seattle, Washington. Born in 1972 in Sandpoint, Idaho to a family of artists and musicians, she went on to obtain a BFA with emphasis in Painting/Drawing from OTIS College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California in 1995.
Her work has been shown throughout California and the Northwest, most recently in group shows at the Freemont Abbey Arts Center, Seattle, WA; Collective Visions Gallery, Bremerton, WA; Spokane club, Spokane, WA; and Portland City Hall, Portland, OR.
She works primarily in the mediums of oil on canvas and chalk pastel on paper. Utilizing a representational style, she is ever fascinated by detail, addressing the triumph and folly of human existence by depicting ambiguous, visual “soundbytes” that invite the viewer to infer their own
