Current A Gallery Installation: Proposed Land Use Action by Elisheva Cieslewitz

Integrus Architecture proudly sponsors the A Gallery located next to our Seattle office in historic Occidental Park.

Proposed Land Use Action is artist, Elisheva Cieslewitz’s homage to her first house in Seattle and the twelve other homes currently slated for demolition on the north side of NE 66th Street.

Elisheva Cieslewitz was born in Paradise Valley, Montana and then moved with her mother and sisters to California. She grew up in Fresno and was fortunate enough to spend a good time in the redwoods and at Yosemite National Park. These colossal scenes in contrast to the agricultural landscapes of Fresno helped shape her worldview and the direction her art would take. She is currently residing in Seattle and draws inspiration from both the vibrancy of people and the quiet parks and natural places that become sanctuaries away from the noise of city life. In art, she attempts to capture fleeing moments of life, drawing a contrast between the paradox of humanity’s temporal nature and the idea that there is more to life than just our physical experiences. Humans are a powerful force on our environment, and can often do more harm than good. Art becomes a way for her to confront these difficult subjects and process both the loss and beauty of life.

The Gallery is open Monday through Friday 8am – 5pm for public viewing.
Proposed Land Use Action will be available for viewing from January 4, 2018 – February 23, 2018.
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 4, 2018 from 530PM – 8PM Part of the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk.
