?Breanne Koselke is a freelance photographer who shoots everything from rock shows to weddings. Her work reflects a documentary view of people, their lives, and what drives them. Her photos have appeared in Tablet, The Stranger, Seattle Weekly, and on Spin.com. She is currently working towards her Masters in Fine Art. The Way We Get By takes a photographic view of how a handful of local musicians continue to make rent to make music, capturing them in both their worlds of day job employee and onstage performer. The project is about people as they are and as they strive to be.
Philadelphia native Michael Lane studied fine art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts as a painting and printmaking student. He’s since made a living making prints and furniture out of salvaged materials from abandoned Victorian buildings, designing sets for theater and opera, and running a wallpaper manufacturing facility. Rockstar Heroes takes Michael back to his salvaging roots- these stencil portraits of music icons are painted on old opera canvas backdrops- originally 40 by 80 feet, now cut down to small sizes. The musicians featured in this series include David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Siouxie Sioux, and Patti Smith.
The First Thursday opening reception for these artists’ shows will be on November 2nd from 6 to 10pm and will feature DJ Teenage Rampage & DJ Kingblind (spinning music inspired by ‘Rockstar Heroes’ subjects) and a you-be-the-band photo shoot, where people can pose with VAIN-styled rock models. In addition, both artists have generously offered to donate a piece of art each to a raffle benefiting The Vera Project’s Capital Campaign.
