Gallery 40 is, "A free range art gallery" based on the concept that, "the space has legitimacy because of the artwork in it, and not that the artwork has legitimacy because of the space it is in. Founded and headed by my good friend and colleague, Todd Jannausch, the gallery is forty square feet of mobile "gallery" space aimed at promoting the work of new and emerging artists at various Seattle art walks.
Having received tremendous attention over the past few months, the gallery has exhibited the graffiti work of such artists as the Nova High School Dead Rats, or the haunting collodion Ambrotype portraits by local photographer Daniel Carrillo. This month, Gallery 40 will be featuring new photographic work by a dear friend of mine, Erin Sweeny. Currently pursuing an MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Sweeny will be exhibiting the series, "You ( ) Take It With You."
Join Erin Sweeny, Gallery 40, and Print Zero Studios in Georgetown on Friday, August 27, from 5-10 pm. It promises to be a fun-filled night welcoming Erin Sweeny back to Seattle!
