Melissa Daye was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, the daughter of two medical professionals, but, while medicine remained an influence, her love for drawing and painting led her to art. The digital heavy curriculum in college was unappealing however, and when she found the more tactile experience of tattooing, she never looked back.
“Inner-Sections” explores her dual interests of visual expression and anatomy.
I never really had much interest in working in actual medicine, but I was sort of intrigued by the clinical nature of the imagery and working with bodies. The detachment of medical illustration from its subject can sometimes leave you feeling almost as if you're looking at an alien. Reconciling that strange interiority, especially with your conscious awareness of self, is fascinating, and sometimes frightening to me.
In 2018 Melissa moved with her family and a menagerie of pets to Seattle, where she continues tattooing at True Love Tattoo on Capitol Hill.
"Inner-Sections" opens August 17th, with a reception from 6-9pm. Pieces will be on display through September 20th.
Opening this Thursday, July 20th, alongside The Mind of Plants!
Native Moths of Seattle is an exhibition of scientific illustrations by Francesca Udeschini featuring ten of the Seattle area’s most dazzling moth species. All the moths represented in this series of illustrations are
native to the Pacific Northwest and have been frequently documented in the Seattle area. Despite their beauty and the frequency of their distribution, most folks have never seen or even heard of any of these moths.
The goal of this exhibition is to increase public awareness of Seattle’s native moth species, and to shed light on a part of the natural world that usually remains out of sight.
A book containing pieces from the exhibit will also be available.
Francesca Udeschini (they/them) is a queer, Italian-American, interdisciplinary artist and scientific illustrator based in Seattle whose work explores themes of mortality, impermanence, and transformation. Their practice is all about slowing down, observing the natural world, and reflecting on the passage of time.
They hold a deep love and respect for the flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest and use scientific illustration as a point of entry for bearing witness to the sacred life which surrounds us.
Francesca earned a BFA from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze in Florence, Italy, where they studied oil painting. They also received a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where they studied sculpture and alternative photographic processes. In 2019 they received a Certificate in Natural Science Illustration from the University of Washington. See more of their work at www.francescaudeschini.com.

Join us at the opening reception July 20th, from 6-9pm, to find out! The show will be up through August 16th.
In Japanese Folklore, Hyakki Yagyo is the procession and riot of demons and ghosts in the night causing pandemonium and terror amongst villages. Gendai Hyakki Yagyo: Modern Day Demon Parade is a new take on the old folktales- taking current events and reimagining them as ghost stories told from the future to imagine how ghosts of the past are navigating in our current world.
This show is a part of Push/Pull's Artist-in-Residency Program. This year's AiR, Marie Okuma Johnston, is a first-generation Japanese American who spends their time navigating between the U.S. and Japan. Marie has a love of Japanese Folklore, Edo Period Yokai Art, and creating art pieces that discuss current events and political topics through whimsical imagery.
Join us June 15th from 6-9pm for the Opening Reception!
