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.

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.
