Taking Flight at Out of Sight 2017
The event might be Out of Sight, but it’s certainly not out of mind. Earlier this month Goodship gathered with family, friends and budtenders to experience Seattle’s contemporary art scene.
Out of Sight is an annual event showcasing contemporary art from the Pacific Northwest. This year’s event is based out of the historic Schoenfelds’ building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. The event occupies three floors and 18,000 square feet of art and installations. More than 100 established and emerging artists working in a diversity of mediums are featured.
What we love most about Out of Sight is its focus on supporting artists from the region we call home. Rumor has it, Out of Sight is the largest collection of PNW artists under one roof — ever!
What we saw reminded us of things we might see aboard our own Goodship. We dove deep into the Pacific with Neon Saltwater, a hotel room covered in blues and greens. Junko Yamamoto created a softer space with orange fabric walls and pillows hanging like clouds. Other prominent pieces included Weirdocult’s floor to ceiling mural and Electric Coffin’s breathtaking installation of an oversized vacant wolf.
We ate pancakes, sipped mimosas and mingled with attendees. Artist Jed Dunkerley even walked us through the 287 pieces on display. It was a great day to ride the Goodship.
Out of Sight runs until August 27 at 115 South Jackson Street. The gallery is open for viewing Friday, Saturday and Sundays from 12 PM to 6PM. Admission is $10 and tickets can be purchased at the door. Learn more at http://www.outofsight.space/
