For the month of March 2017, Make.Shift Art Space will host two consecutive exhibitions. The front room will feature One and the Same Over Time, an installation by Seattle-based sculpture artist Amber Barney-Nivon. Her work explores patterns and phenomena in the known world as a way of feeling a connection with the Universe. She uses a variety of media such as crystals, metal, wood, glass, acrylic, and found objects. The back room will feature photography by Seattle-based artist Juan Franco. The exhibition Arent You Glad? is a collection of works that indulge in decay. These self-aware works remind the viewer of something familiar and ominous, a reminder of our own lives as fleeting.
