06-2017 Exhibit Alchemy of the Abstract VIII

June 1 - 26


Newel Hunter - Long Story

Newel Hunter - Long Story

Our bi-annual juried exhibition of abstracted and non-representational art. Open to all media. The artist’s work often explores the uses of unconventional materials, ever pushing the boundaries of what we’re accustomed to think of as art. This show never fails to bring out a wide range of frequently colorful and always thought-provoking work.


Jonathan Wood of Abmeyer + Wood gallery in Seattle. Originally from the East Coast, Jonathan moved to Seattle in 2002 to attend a Master's program in Art History at University of Washington where he focused on contemporary Northwest Coast Native American art. While in school, Jonathan started an internship with a local gallery. He eventually became director of that gallery, before acquiring it in January 2012 and rebranding it as Abmeyer + Wood. Jonathan is passionate about many art forms but has a special place in his heart for abstract expressionist painting and figurative sculpture.
