Medium: Oak and trunnels from Wawona Dimensions: 13 x 49 x 25 inches (image) Artist details: American , 1970 Date finished: 2013
Recommended by Sam (Owner & Director): "This sculpture, made from planks salvaged from the historic lumber transport ship Wawona (finally taken apart in Lake Union after restoration attempts failed to find funding), tells so much about the source of his materials and the artist's interest in finding inspiration where initial utility was not the final condition for consideration. Look no farther than the artist's giant reconstructed tree currently installed at the Seattle Art Museum. Parse makes rich use of the bilge stained oak timbers from the hull and with the dowels or trunnels referencing the early marine construction methods. The graceful curve out from the wall suggests the curve of the former ship's hull. Grade honors the memory of the Wawona with a new life."
Medium: Charcoal on paper on panel Dimensions: 48 x 36 inches (image/panel) Artist details: 1946 Date finished: 2011
Recommended by Sam (Owner & Director): "Then And Now is a charcoal on paper drawing of the West Seattle Bridge, part of a series of Seattle views, by Pittsburgh professor of architecture Douglas Cooper. He lends dramatic perspective to a familiar view. His drawing effectively captures river traffic on the Duwamish waterway, the motion implied by the exaggerated curve of the bridge, the cranes, the drawbridges, the over and underpasses, and lighted billboard all contribute to the activity found in this view. Cooper is willing to alter his respect for the static structures involved just enough to make the whole scene dynamic."
