Queer folk artist Joey Veltkamp gravitates to fiber arts, combining images and text from his Puget Sound home in cheeky works that reference everything from roadside signs to retired ferries. SPIRIT!, which includes soft sculptures, flags, and quilts, makes a playful reference to hippie mysticism and school spirit. The exhibition is staged as a cross between a country fair and a school auditorium, pulling from relatable scenes past and present to create a joyful nostalgia and queer sentimentality. There's even a resurrection of Pantry, Veltkamp’s ongoing collaboration with his partner Ben Gannon in which local berries and flowers are used to make conceptual jams and jellies. Yum!
