Art Residency Farewell Party

March 22 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


After an incredible six months, we’re saying farewell to our current cohort of artists in residence. Join us in celebrating Shruti, Nahom, and Jay and the vibrancy they’ve brought to Downtown Seattle.

As part of Downtown Art Walk, we will offer opportunities to engage with the artists, including the chance to contribute to a collaborative art piece, observe a live painting, and more!

Complimentary refreshments and light bites will be provided.

Nahom Ghirmay

Art has been my steadfast companion throughout my ‘nomadic’ life, providing me with a sense of stability amidst ever-changing landscapes. Having lived in multiple countries, my artistic perspective has been profoundly shaped by these experiences, reshaping my concept of ‘home’. My artworks explore the complexities of identity and emotional experiences through a range of mediums. I’m fascinated by the ways in which we communicate our innermost feelings through the subtle cues of our facial expressions and physical gestures. I draw inspiration from the stories, ambitions, and worries of those around me, seeking to encapsulate these rich tales within my own artistic interpretation. I believe that art has the power to connect people across cultures and backgrounds. Through my work, I hope to foster empathy and understanding between individuals and to create a space for meaningful dialogue.

Jay Stoneking

Jay Stoneking is a queer, mixed-race visual artist and graphic novelist living and working in Seattle, WA. Primarily self-taught, his creative practice spans traditional and digital mediums, design, and storytelling. He uses the physical ritual of creation as an outlet for his relationship with the divine, magic, and mysticism, exploring transformation and ascension in his visual works as he journeys the depths of his dreams into a sacred unknown.
