Story
Tagline
Painter and social artist Kate Vrijmoet lives and works in Seattle, WA. She received her MFA from Syracuse University. Her paintings and installations focus on the human body and the human condition, and on issues of consciousness, boundaries, and access. Vrijmoet was one of 16 American artists participating in the 2012 5th Beijing International Bienniale. Her sound installation, Mother May I…? was awarded Best Installation by Charlotta Kotik, Curator Emerita Brooklyn Museum of Art. And it was exhibited at Orange County Center on Contemporary Art–a show endorsed by Nicolas Bourriaud. Vrijmoet has exhibitied in shows juried by curators of the Met (Anne Strauss) and the Guggenheim (Nat Trotman). She received 3rd Prize in 2010 Ecuador Bienniale. Her work has been published in New American Paintings, The Seattle Times, Catapult Magazine and in 2010, CoCA Seattle published a 42-page catalog for her solo show, Kate Vrijmoet: Essential Gestures. Upcoming exhibitions include a two-person show scheduled at the Esvelt Gallery in Eastern Washington in November 2013, and an exhibit on Destigmatizing Mental Illness in the City Hall Annex in Seattle.
Introduction

I use the tools of classical painting to provoke emotions in my audience they might more often associate with theater. For example, I think great painting can be funny. And, that great painting can provide the sense -- not the sight, but the sense -- of another world so engulfing you feel like you're in it. I don’t settle for less than an extremely high impact experience for the viewer.  In our era, painting can make do with lesser aims, but what should we be asking of painting that goes the distance?

Do not go to this QFC or you'll get a parking ticket, which they will TELL you that they will "take care of it, just bring us the ticket" 6 weeks later you'll get a collections notice with a big added fine heaped on top and a load of attitude from the manager Danielle, who will swear she took care of it and it's all parking services fault. In the mean time, you know they waited a month to send the ticket in. Nos you have a dinged credit score and you can't renew your driver's license. Just stop shopping here.

They were very nice on the phone and their prices are reasonable. They were a no show for my appointment. No call, no cancellation, just NO SHOW. Forget them, they're unreliable. Go elsewhere.

Sometimes you find a vendor you like so much you almost want to keep them to yourself, because, if you tell everyone how responsive, professional, courteous, and reasonable they are, then EVERYONE will start using them, and the demand will go way up, and then they'll have to raise their prices and then I won't be able to use them anymore because everyone will know they're rock stars. So, I'm going to keep this one all to myself. So, don't read this review. Because I need them and they're too good to share.
