Kicking off our 2011 "Meet the Artist" Series at Alexis Hotel: Thur, Feb 3rd

Meet The Artist Series
Featuring live painting by Seattle artist, John Osgood
Thursday, February 3 from 5 - 6pm

Alexis Hotel
1007 First Avenue
Seattle, WA 98104

Stop by the lobby of the Alexis Hotel this Thursday and enjoy a glass of wine and a chocolate covered fortune cookie in celebration of the Lunar New Year! This is a perfect opportunity to kick-off the 1st Thursday artwalk in style and you're within easy walking distance of other great venues like the 619 Western & TK Buildings. Alexis also showcases Seattle artists works in their corridors curated by SAM rental gallery. This bi-monthly "Meet the Artist" series is brought to you by Bherd. (Mark your calendar for 1st Thursday in April for the next one, artist TBA).

About the artists work:

Osgood paints idiosyncratic characters with a bold palette in an urban art style. His collection of colorful and odd characters are inspired by life and the uncomfortable, forlorn and many times humorous circumstances that happen within it. He is a processed oriented painter and uses vibrant contrasting color palettes to illicit a “pop” factor. He often juxtaposes bright vivid color with depressing emotions to provide a balance to surprise the viewer. Viewers will find something of themselves or people that they know in many of his portraitures, as his focus is on conveying a certain emotion. Whether it’s a guy overloaded with information in “Processed Thoughts” or the proudly over-bronzed guy in a “Perfect Tan”, Osgood likes to find the humor in each situation. http://www.johnosgood.com/
