Uniform at Treason Gallery

Posted by / Filed under Blog

2017 started about as good as I could have ever hoped. I had my first solo exhibition, ‘Uniform’ at Treason Gallery in Seattle for the month of January.  All 17 limited edition prints from the series were on display.  3 at 43.5”x58” (edition of 3 + 2AP), and 14 prints at 24”x32” (edition of 5 + 2AP). And I have to say, seeing them in print, larger than life is pretty incredible.

The opening reception was an experience I will never forget. So many friends, family, and new faces. It was like a dream. I also added a surprise at the opening by creating a live sculpture.

If you are interested in purchasing a print, you can contact alex@treasongallery.com, or find our more on the Treason website.

All of the images can also be seen here on my site on the Uniform page.

One million thank you’s to Treason Gallery, and also to my friends at Top Pot, and Seattle PBR for sponsoring the opening.Treason Gallery_Kealtey Uniform_Opening-9

In August, I took part in my fist group show, Out Of Sight 2016, at the historic King Street Station in Seattle.  Two of my Falling Bodies prints were on display, and what a thrill to be included with such talented artists from the Pacific Northwest, including two of my favorites, Rodrigo Valenzuela, and Susan Dory.

The only thing more exciting than showing at Out Of Sight this year, was selling my first print and seeing that little red dot next to the title card.  Hopefully this is just the beginning.

Special thanks to Greg Lundgren, Sierra Stinson, and Mackenzie Canlis, as well as the entire Out Of Sight team, for making this happen.
