Zack Bent

Lean-out, Lean-to is an installation inspired by a chance encounter with a truck canopy in Spokane. Bent takes that structural form and adopts it into a “monolithic chamber of secrets.” Jack Straw New Media Gallery, 4261 Roosevelt Way N.E., 634-0919, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon.-Fri. Ends Feb. 6.


Bruce Bickford If you live in Seattle and love animation, then bow down to this hometown hero. Since the ’60s he’s relentlessly churned out bewitchingly bizarre films featuring surreal landscapes both hand-drawn and crafted in clay. Although he’s most remembered for his half-dozen years as Frank Zappa’s resident animator, he’s continued to produce incredible work, including one of history’s greatest work’s of stop-motion, Prometheus’ Garden.

Vermillion, 1508 11th Ave., 709-9797, 4 p.m.-midnight. Tues.-Sun., Ends Feb. 7.

BAM Biennial: Knock on Wood Again, there’s a very materials-focused emphasis to this biannual group show. Clay and fiber art were featured in 2012 and 2010, respectively; now it’s the chisel-and-mallet set’s turn to display their creations. Some of the three dozen artists featured you know or have seen before at BAM (or local galleries), like Rick Araluce, Whiting Tennis, and W. Scott Trimble. The juried selection offers every variety of woodworking from the Northwest, ranging from indigenous Native American carvings to smartly modern furniture that might fit into your SLU condo. In addition to a juried award, which bestows a future solo show and a $5,000 prize (the winner to be announced this week), there’s a popular balloting system whereby visitors can select their own favorite pieces. And you cast your voting on regular old scraps of paper—appropriate, of course, since they were originally made of the same material the artists are using. BRIAN MILLER Bellevue Arts Museum, 510 Bellevue Way N.E., 425-519-0770, $5-$10. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Tues.-Sun. Ends March 29.


City Dwellers A dozen contemporary Indian artists are represented in this show organized by SAM and originating entirely from the private local collection of Sanjay Parthasarathy (a Microsoft millionaire) and wife Malini Balakrishnan. Scenes and icons from Mumbai to New Delhi are represented via photography and sculpture, from an all-native perspective. As tourists know, India is ridiculously photogenic, from its colorful idols and deities to the slums and beggars. It all depends on what you want to see. Photographer Dhruv Malhotra, for instance, takes large color images of people sleeping in public places—some because they’re poor, others because they simply feel like taking a nap. Nandini Valli Muthiah opts for more stage-managed scenes, posing a costumed actor as the blue-skinned Hindu god Krishna in contemporary settings; in one shot I love, he sits in a hotel suite, like a tired business traveler awaiting a conference call on Skype. Sculptor Debanjan Roby even dares to appropriate the revered figure of Gandhi, rendering him in bright red fiberglass and listening to a white iPod. Apple never made such an ad, of course, but this impudent figure tweaks both India’s postcolonial history and the relentless consumerism that now links us all, from Seattle to Srinagar. BRIAN MILLER Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Ave., 654-3121, $12–$19. Weds.-Sun.

Ends Feb. 15.

Contemporary Prints from Thailand AND PRINTS OF INDUSTRY A selection of prints from the Chiang Mai Art on Paper Studio, as well as an exhibition of prints examining the rise of the industrial era. Davidson Galleries, 313 Occidental Ave. S., 624-6700, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tues.-Sat. Ends Feb. 16.


Patrick Driscoll & Barry Stone Driscoll is a painter, but he prefers T-shirts and underwear to canvasses. Stone’s “data-bending” work uses technology to warp his photo and video pieces. James Harris Gallery, 604 Second Ave, 903-6220, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat. Ends Feb. 14.


John Grade

Middle Fork is a replica of a giant Western hemlock created with plaster molds and real wood chunks. MadArt, 325 Westlake Ave. N., 623-1180, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wed.-Sat. Ends Apr. 25.

Greg Kucera Gallery, 212 Third Ave., 624-0770, 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tues.-Sat. Ends Feb. 14.

Andreas Kocks & Robin Layton In a clever twist on the notion of “medium,” Kocks sculpts “paint” out of paper that leaps off the canvas. Layton’s photo series attempts to capture the emotional spirit of the Seahawks’ “12th Man” fans. Winston Wachter Fine Art, 203 Dexter Ave. N., 652-5855, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon.-Sat. Ends Feb 25.

Skyspace James Turrell’s Skyspace stands on two concrete pillars in the Henry’s erstwhile sculpture courtyard. On the exterior, thousands of LED fixtures under the structure’s frosted glass skin create slowly shifting colors, making the pavilion a spectacular piece of public art every night. Inside, the ellipse of sky seen through the chamber’s ceiling suddenly appears to be very, very close, a thin membrane bulging into the room. Wispy bits of cirrus clouds passing by appear to be features on the slowly rotating surface of a luminous, egg-shaped blue planet suspended just overhead. Emerging from the Skyspace, I find the night wind and the light in the clouds come to me through freshly awakened senses. A dreamy, happy feeling follows me home like the moon outside my car window. DAVID STOESZ Henry Art Gallery

Jason Walker A giant deer towers over the city, like all those Amazon construction cranes above South Lake Union. An elevated roadway turns to a river, pouring commuters over the brink of a waterfall. Aberrant chickens lay coins instead of eggs. Welcome to the fanciful urban menagerie of Bellingham’s Walker, whose solo show On the River, Down the Road has been specially created for BAM. The local artist works mainly in ceramics, combining whimsy and satire, “exploring American ideas of nature and how technology has changed our perceptions of it.” That notion of transmogrification seems apt in our booming, post-recession Northwest (Bellevue is sprouting as fast as Seattle, after all). There’s a woodsy surrealism to Walker’s work, as if unfathomable forces—hatched almost from dreams—are burrowing into our conscious cityscape. With Bertha slumbering underground, almost like a dormant monster, his fairy-tale phantasmagoria may be closer to reality than we think. BRIAN MILLER Bellevue Arts Museum, ends March 1.
