To Whoever Even Listen explores the legacy of intergenerational trauma through three generations of letters, writing, medical records, and autobiographical comics.
Weaving stories from the author's grandmother, an immigrant incarcerated in mental institutions, to the author's own experience as trans, Sansei and disabled, this multimedia graphic novel explores themes of memory, truth, and how to love anyways.
The show will comprise original comic pages, personal letters, and other writing used to piece together the graphic novel, which will also be available.
The opening reception is Thursday, February 16th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, and the show will be on display for a month.
Push/Pull Members and friends present a one-of-a-kind exhibition in...
The show concept is old-school 3D art (aka stereoscopic printing), with the red and cyan glasses. Original art is transformed into the third dimension before your very eyes! With the use of a risograph printer and red and cyan glasses, we've taken original art and given it the comic book treatment of days of yore.
We'll also be compiling and releasing a limited run of 100 books containing images of the original art alongside their 3D versions (glasses included). The exhibition will have 3D glasses available for attendees to enjoy the art in its full multidimensional glory.
The opening reception and book release is Thursday, January 19th, from 6-9pm! The show will be on display through February 15th.
Anyone close to a crafter knows about “the good scissors.” The ones where, if used on the wrong material, become a very sharp, precise weapon from a rightfully wronged maker!
This December, Push/Pull is presenting a group show of 10+ local fiber artists - from cross-stitch/embroidery to macramé, crochet and knitting to tapestry - exploring textures in textiles.

The opening reception will take place on December 15, 2022 from 6-9pm (a Third Thursday event by Bal-Art).
All work will be shown until January 18, 2023.
Seattle artist Seth Goodkind brings a whole new body of work to the public for the first time! Join us at Push/Pull from 6-9pm for the opening reception (a Third Thursday event by Bal-Art).
“Cognitive Dissidents is my first 3-D art show. I have always enjoyed building models and working with miniatures, but over the last 5 years as my drawing and tattoo work has transitioned to digital and became a “job,” miniatures increasingly took over as my creative outlet. I love the idea of enclosed worlds. They have a quality of unreality that is isolated from our touch. The scenes feel living, but unreal, there is something inside of them that I’m not the architect of – I’m just giving them the opportunity to exist. Each piece comes together almost as a stream of consciousness assemblage, as an idea strikes me, and I find themes, scales, locations and elements that when put together, challenge or defy our sense of expected reality.”
Seth Goodkind is a tattoo artist at True Love Tattoo and a founding member of Push/Pull, an arts collective in Ballard, Seattle.
Cognitive Dissidents will be on display November 17th through December 14th.
We're bringing back on of our favorites from the other side of the country - Alli Good (Asheville, NC) - for a special solo show this September.
Opening reception: September 15th, 6pm - 9pm, a Third Thursday event by Bal-Art.
From the artist:
"This body of work is formed by and represents a perspective of anxiety. The show is titled “Prey” because the images contain some religious imagery but also images of anxiety from an AFAB perspective. The loss of rights. The baseline fear that AFAB people carry."
Can't get enough Alli Good? (We don't blame you!) Take her art with you everywhere you go - Alli will be tattooing at True Love Art Gallery & Tattoo on Capitol Hill Saturday the 17th & Sunday the 18th.
PREY will be on display September 15th through October 20th.
