Roq La Rue Gallery has spent more than the last decade bringing fine artists from Seattle and abroad into their modest space in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood. But come April 28th, 2013, their Belltown location will be closed forever — sadly dampening the appeal of the neighborhood’s last favorable drag — and will be joining Pioneer Square’s First Thursday art gallery circuit with their new space at 532 1st Ave S (near King St).

Kicking off their new space will be a folkloric and symbolism-laden show of the variety we’ve come to expect from REDEFINE favorite and watercolor master Stacey Rozich. According to Roq La Rue, this new show, entitled Within Without Me, “is a notable jump up from previous shows containing larger, more complex works rendered in her trademark mediums of watercolor and gouache, as well as a deeper, more profound exploration of contemporary global social political themes.”

The show opens Thursday, May 2nd, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Roq La Rue’s new location. See full post for a complete preview, or read our in-depth interview with Rozich where she talks about her roots, thematic inspirations, and emphasis on visual storytelling.



“As I got older, I learned that if you can convey a story with an image, then you’re good; you’re golden. So I focused on having this background narrative that wasn’t quite obvious, yet each piece has a little vignette — a little drama in it.”
– Stacey Rozich, in her REDEFINE interview
