"Saturn doesn’t ask us to give up our dreams, only to make them real." -Steven Forrest

Saturn Return is a series of photographic collage exploring the chaos and transformation of subjects who are in the period when Saturn returns to their natal placement. It takes about 29.5 years to bring Saturn back to where it was when you were born. At the time of Saturn Return, some of the choices we’ve made in our twenties are revealed to be out of sync with our true destiny. Sometimes we make life choices before we really know who we are. The Saturn Return pressures us to make life-altering decisions. It often creates a crisis that puts you face-to-face with your fears, and many of these have deep roots in your psyche, but they’re also about living up to societal expectations. It’s a time to be real with oneself about what behaviors and actions need to stay in the past and what needs to change to live the most fulfilled life. It can be a time of chaos, grief, and frustration but if we open to the gifts and insight Saturn brings us our lives can be forever changed.

Glasswing Presents: Shapes

A Trunk Show and Exhibition in Collaboration
with Wyatt Orr and Vignettes featuring Michael Ottersen


April 10th - 17th.
1525 Melrose Ave S

Glasswing will be hosting a very special event entitled: Shapes. This conceptual and multimedia experience brings together local fashion design duo, Wyatt Orr and Seattle curator Sierra Stinson of Vignettes. Designers Liise Wyatt and Karly Orr present a trunk show of their stunning spring/summer 2014 line with an installation and video to accompany by Charlie Schuck as well as live projections installed by videographer Patrick Richardson Wright. For the last three years, Wyatt Orr has been designing clean and modern silhouettes which we are excited to see paired up with the contemporary creations of Michael Ottersen.

Sierra Stinson, founder of DIY gallery Vignettes, has invited Seattle artist Michael Ottersen to exhibit a series of paintings to be paired with Wyatt Orr’s Collection. “Abstraction is my interest due to it’s complete access to every aspect of image making but also demands questions and interpretations from the viewer,” says Ottersen who has called Seattle home for nearly two decades now. Ottersen is represented by local gallery SEASON, has exhibited throughout the US and internationally.

Each element comments on our relationship and interaction with shapes. Join us in-store Thursday April 10th for a reception and the opportunity to view the works of some of Seattle’s finest.

KEPT is a collecting. Simply by being alive we are collectors and in a certain state of mind, objects, our thoughts, and people we know present themselves as collectible and so we keep them. We keep them around and arrange them, like a physical spell: all of the objects for our pieces, all of our pieces for the show. A city can keep you, and you can keep that city. You can keep a lover long after you have lost them. You can be kept.

"The ‘normal’ among us often try to dictate what is appropriate behavior for societal structure, and yet their lives are empty, their hearts corrupt. Perhaps the ‘strange’ among us are, indeed, on the correct path. Often their lives are plain, their hearts fragile, scarred, but purified by trial."
- Lord Vincithias
