Lorie Ransom is a long-time graphic designer and itinerant artist who, in 2013, committed to completing a drawing every day for one year. The product of her effort is “The Daily Drawing”, a collection of light and whimsical ink-on-paper art. Many of the later drawings include humorous dialog reminiscent of newspaper comics. In her art, Lorie attempts to find a bit of “ridiculous” in the mundane things in life that most everyone can relate to. Lorie has continued the project indefinitely, sharing her drawings on social networks and her personal blog.
The drawings in this show are selects from the first 365 days. Since completing the project I’ve continued to draw every day (with small exceptions) and as of this opening, I am somewhere around day 545.

I’ve always been intrigued by masks and the role they play in mythology, storytelling and celebrations. They are a rare unifying thread found in every culture throughout history. Masks bestow people with the power to change how they are perceived, freeing them to engage with the world in new ways.
From the Ashes explores the interdependence between life and death, flora and fauna. With the uncertain future that our planet faces, we may eventually live in a world where knowledge of many plants and animals is entirely constructed from myths of the past. Stripped down to simple forms and greyscale shapes, these masks celebrate the power of nature.

Artist Rachel Campbell brings an upbeat collection of bike paintings in oil to Zinc Art + Interiors from July 17- August 18. The show opens with a big bike bang on July 17th from 5-8 with Chris Freed, owner of Salty Bicycles out of Ballard, hand crafting one-of-a kind bikes on site. Rachel will also be creating limited edition prints on Zinc’s etching press during the month of her show.
“My work is best described as a very specific form of documentary,” Rachel said. “I am constructing a body of work that depicts and interprets the complex interactions between our objects, our interiors, and our environments.”
Rachel Campbell’s artistic painting pieces invite the viewer to consider what the objects in our lives invariably say about our own selves. In her show at Zinc, she asks us to consider the insights our bikes have to say about us.
“I feel that a bicycle is an extension of you and should reflect your riding style, whether it’s on your commute to work or taking a beating at the Saturday criterium,” Chris Freed stated.
So what does your bike say about you? Bring or ride your bike to Zinc’s opening night or anytime from July 17-August 18 and find out.
