Steele Gallery: Chimeddorj: Mongolian Modernism

Shagdarjavin Chimeddorj (b. 1954) was raised in Mongolia within a culture of nomadic horsemen. He depicts the body language of horses through sensitive and varied use of spare strokes of ink and modernist applications of oil paint. Deep blue color plays an important role in his work, partly expressing the depth of space felt on the Mongolian steppe. Internationally collected, the majority of the body of his works shown at Gage are on loan from the Hughes and Potter family collections.

Benjamin Vierling: A Decennary Retrospective


January 17 -- February 14

Concurrent Artist Lecture: Friday, January 17
7:00pm/Geo Studio (3rd floor)

Showcasing select drawings and paintings from 10 years of work, 2004-2014, A Decennary Retrospective is California artist Benjamin Vierling's first solo exhibition in Seattle. Employing primarily a 15th century mixed media technique of egg tempera and oil paints on panel, he integrates mythical references with contemporary subjects to bridge the timeless with the ephemeral. The iconic compositions of these panels indicate a rich historical precedent, distilling influences from the classical era, through the renaissance, the romantic period and into the present.

Straight Back Home to You

In this collaborative and highly sensory installation, Hannah Viano examines definitions of home, and how we and the space we inhabit change as time marches on.

Streams of birds take flight on their own journeys, swooping up the viewer in a whirlwind of motion that escapes the walls of the gallery. Other artists included Amy Ross, Emma Morehouse, Sarah Jones, Emily Eagle and Jess Thomson, all bringing their own distinct layers of sound, movement, ephemera and flavor to the space.
