QArts presents Matt Wencl in Sept. show After large back to back group shows featuring a wide variety of talented local LGBTQ artists, QArts, the arts committee of the Seattle LGBT Community Center, is pleased to present the work of noted local artist Matt Wencl in a show of mixed media pieces that combine his photography and other techniques into works of arresting beauty and complexity.

Matt Wencl's first exhibited work, a collage of drawings and pastels, was at the Seattle LGBT Community Center/QArts "Portraits of Pride" show in June of 2004, an annual show he has participated in for the last four years. In September 2005 he exhibited 40 of his transparent greeting cards, featuring his light photography, at Presence on 15th Street (since relocated to Broadway). For his September show at the LGBT Center you'll see a display of his creative exploration with the medium of resin. Combining photography, drawings, and collages printed on transparencies with found objects, mints, and dye, he creates wall sculptures and pictures that capture light as much as reflect it. The title of the show, "Dehiscence," is defined as "a spontaneous bursting open at maturity of a seed pod or organ or a sudden opening of anything&" Matt chose this title in reference to similar themes that appear in his own work; his created images resemble the seeds, pods, or openings of nature rendered in various colorful and resinous incarnations.

A native of South Dakota, Matt Wencl studied English at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, where he received his bachelor's and master's degrees. He has lived in Seattle for six years and works as the ad and copy writer for World Lux, a luxury retailer of fine pens, watches, and leather.

Please join QArts in honoring the art of Matt Wencl at an opening reception for his month long show, on Saturday, September 8th from 6pm to 9pm at the Seattle LGBT Community Center, 1115 E Pike St on Capitol Hill. Refreshments will be served and admission is free to the public. Also, please note that this reception has been moved from the traditional first Saturday of the month, due to the Labor Day weekend. The show will run through September 30th and can be viewed during normal operating hours at The Center dependent on volunteer staffing and occupancy of the gallery/meeting space. For more information, stop by The Center, or phone at 206.323.5428 or email us at qarts@seattlelgbt.org.
