PRESS RELEASE

A Few Good Years in New York – Stephanie Hargrave

Embroidered Works from Tel Aviv – Iris Guy

SODA ARTS by LEICHT SEATTLE is pleased to show the work of Stephanie Hargrave alongside that of Iris Guy.  Both women have recently returned to Seattle; Hargrave spent three years in Brooklyn, New York and Guy Sofer lived the last five years with her children in Tel Aviv, Israel.  Their work reflects these experiences in very specific and personal ways.

The exhibit includes ink on paper, porcelain/stoneware/encaustic sculptures, encaustic paintings (Hargrave), and delicate photo-based embroidered works on paper and postcards (Guy Sofer).

Hargrave has shown her work in Seattle, New York, Brooklyn, Baltimore, Atlanta, and San Louis Obispo, among other cities. She received her BA from the University of Puget Sound with additional studies at the University of Washington, and has been the recipient of multiple grants, residencies, and exhibitions.  SODA ARTS is excited to bring her East coast series to Seattle. “Stephanie’s work is powerful and inquisitive. It captures the energy and intensity of living in Brooklyn during the pandemic, and the progression toward finding comfort and inspiration as her time there unfolded.”

Guy Sofer, both a fine artist and master jeweler, has shown her work internationally after a career as an award-winning graphic designer.  She holds a formal degree in conceptual design from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel.  “Guy’s pieces are feats of patience; purposeful and personal.  They emphasize her relationship to her children – the main reason for her recent extended stay in Israel.”  

The exhibit runs from January 5 – February 28, 2023, with the opening reception on First Thursday January 5th, from 5-8pm.  SODA ARTS by LEICHT SEATTLE is located at 303 Occidental Avenue South in Seattle. The gallery is open Friday – Sunday Noon – 5pm or by appointment.
