It’s All in Your Head

New Work by Kyree-Lim Alicio Chak

Opening Reception February 20th 5:30 – 9:30

Kyree-Lim Alicio Chak explores societal issues through his artwork. Social conflicts, contemporary movements, and mental health issues, are just a few of the elements he attempts to address. His musings are ultimately translated through the lens of his large-scale multi-media art. Strongly influenced by the neo-expressionist movement Kyree communicates in vibrant colors, and encrypts messages throughout his works. There is always something to study and decode in his art, which creates a new and memorable experience with each piece.

Kyree-Lim Alicio Chak is born and raised in Tacoma and is currently studying at Pierce College in Puyallup. In conjunction with pursuing his BFA he is developing his studio craft, creating pieces that resonate with the local community and recently have gained considerable attention and notoriety over the past year. Although Kyree is relatively new to the art scene this momentum has prompted him to pursue his first formal solo exhibition at Fulcrum Gallery titled “It’s All in Your Head”.

Generational Retrospective Pt.2

The Massification Project:

A study in Painting and Mixed Media.
May 16th – June10th
Public Reception: May 16th 6 – 8pm

At the intersection of societal norms, technologic saturation, and human naïveté is where the “Massification Project” thrives. Mark Tracy is our guide as we explore these ephemeral relationships through his bold and futuristic paintings. A motif of technologic infrastructure is threaded throughout Marks compositions. Often presented under the gaze of our friend the ubiquitous security camera. Rendered primarily in oils with accents of pastel and graphite this collection of large format canvasses is presented alongside smaller more intimate works. The resulting exhibition captures a frenetic spectrum of influences, mirroring our modern American experience.

Generation Retrospective Pt. 1

April 18th – May 10th

Public Reception: April 18th 6 – 9pm

Generational Retrospective is a two-part exhibition showcasing two different trajectories one of father and one of son. Part one features outsider artist Richard Tracy, more affectionately known as RichArt”. Both a teacher and artist Richard spent a varied career in eastern and central Washington slowly becoming an icon in the folk art world. In the late 1980’s Richard settled in Centralia Washington and began transforming his home through installational collage based art, ultimately developing the work he is best known for called “Art Yard”.

Generational Retrospective Pt. 1 features recent works from Richard Tracy. Although “Art Yard” no longer exists he has translated the same spontaneous dynamic to his low relief multi-media works that will be featured in Fulcrum Gallery.

Beautiful Angle 9.20.18

Sixteen Years in the Making
Beautiful Angle at Fulcrum Gallery
September 20th – October 12th
Public Reception: September 20th 6 – 9pm

Join Lance Kagey, Tom Llewellyn, and the rest of the Beautiful Angle family for a rare fine art show at Fulcrum Gallery.

Instead of the typical large-runs of posters you are familiar with, we will be displaying and selling one-of-a-kind originals. The first layer on each piece was laid down as many as sixteen years ago. Over the following months and years, additional layers of Beautiful Angle imagery, colors, and type were added.

Each one is different. Each one is connected. Each original piece documents the month-by-month history of this Tacoma-based street art project, one layer of ink at a time.
