Colors of Summer

One of the splendors of living in the Pacific Northwest is experiencing its gorgeous summers. When spring transitions into summer something remarkable happens in our neighborhoods: Mount Rainier pops against the blue sky, sunrises and sunsets paint the heavens from bright orange to a soft blue twilight, Farmers Markets teem with people looking for healthy foods, while wildlife forage forests among blooming flowers. Sun’aq Aleut artist Thomas Stream’s August solo exhibit, Colors of Summer, bursts with swaths of bright, bold, vivid color. Stream’s original gouache paintings incorporate his signature pointillist style and Aleut motifs. Upon viewing Stream’s works we are reminded to appreciate the abundance of beauty around us and are encouraged to find joy in the finest details. This exhibit is in conjunction with the Seattle Deconstructed Art Fair.

We are super excited to show off Thomas Stream’s newest original gouache paintings on paper. You’ve got to love it when the artist pivots away from his unique, signature piece that he has added to his paintings over the years. You know the Aleut Hunting Visor that he often adorns one of his animals? Well in these new pieces they are not placed on the animals that take center stage in his work. Rather you will see it more subtly in his signature.

As always, the vibrancy in his work reflects his love and respect for his Sun’aq Aleut heritage. Come marvel and inspect how he uses pointillism and symbols in each of his pieces. We are so honored to celebrate Thomas Stream in his latest body of works, Colors of Summer!
