Photo exhibit features slice of life by 4 artists

Four artists are displaying slices of life through photographs, some alluring and some whimsical, during the January exhibit at Solovei Art Gallery.

The show is called “Photography: Straight Shot.” It opens Wednesday and runs through Jan. 30 at the gallery, 2804 Grand Ave. in Everett. There’s an artist reception from 2 to 6 p.m. Jan. 5.

The four artists are Bob Fink, Harry Longstreet, Maralyne Powell and John Zuanich, who have joined the effort to express “life in its purest, reflected through the unique medium of photography,” said gallery owner Lyussy Hyder.

Arlington artist takes it on the road: Artist Joseph Rossano of Arlington will be featured in the hot shop at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma for a five-day visiting artist residency.

During his residency, Rossano plans to create a flock of glass birds that will eventually dive into an underwater installation. Mirrored murrelets will be installed in the museum’s mid-level plaza reflecting pool in the spring.

Rossano’s residency begins Jan. 9 and will last through Jan. 13 at the museum, 1801 Dock St., Tacoma.

In Rossano’s work, which underscores the relationship between animals and humans, mirrored murrelets highlight the impact on the marbled murrelet, a small sea bird that nests primarily in old-growth forests of the Pacific Northwest.

The installation will include hundreds of mirrored glass murrelets that will be submerged in the museum’s mid-level reflecting pool, creating an image of the birds swimming under water. The mirrored surfaces of the birds will reflect the viewer’s image, symbolically suggesting the effect of humans on the natural world. Charred stumps representing once-abundant old-growth forests will surround the pool, according to press information about the exhibit.

Rossano has exhibited throughout the United States and created public installations for the city of Everett and Macy’s department store in Chicago.
