SCARLETT COTEN Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, Seattle, Jun 18-Jul 25 With the growth of the global art world, artists not normally seen in Seattle are now on view regularly at the new Mariane Ibrahim Gallery. Scarlett Coten introduces an important French photographer who has chronicled men in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Israel in striking studio portraits. She captures the sadness and the hopefulness of a generation caught up in the Arab Spring and then quickly disillusioned by developments that did not necessarily lead to greater freedoms.

SUMMER GROUP EXHIBITION Platform Gallery, Seattle, Jul 2-31 In August, Season gallery will host a pop-up exhibit with its artists at Platform Gallery. One must treasure small galleries that have dealers with specific points of view. Platform, open since 2004, has consistently shown artists from all over who intrigue owner Stephen Lyons. The July show features local and national artists, including big winners such as sculptors Scott Fife and Debra Baxter, genetic abstract artist Jaq Chartier and Brooklyn wonder-woman Joy Garnett.

ROYAL NEBEKER: PAINTINGS AND WORKS ON PAPER Lisa Harris Gallery, Seattle, Jul 30-Aug 30 Lisa Harris Gallery’s summer survey of Royal Nebeker (1945–2014) is the first since his death and the retrospective held last year at the Schneider Museum of Art in Ashland, Oregon. Heavily influenced by Edvard Munch, the Norwegian-American Nebeker exhibited widely in Europe and Asia and is represented in museum collections in Norway, Poland and the United States Expressionistic and colourful, Nebeker’s paintings exude a dark mystery and invite the viewer to participate in their revels.

DWELL G. Gibson Gallery, Seattle, Jun 19-Aug 15 This summer, Gail Gibson has organized Dwell at her gallery, an exhibit of drawing, painting and photography of architectural themes, to showcase her stable of local, national and international artists. G. Gibson is the go-to gallery for fine art photography. Eirik Johnson is joined by other photographers, including Michael Kenna, Linda Connor and JoAnn Verburg, along with promising young painters who are addressing landscape and development, such as Cable Griffith, Susanna Bluhm and Samantha Scherer.

I TAUGHT MYSELF Greg Kucera Gallery, Seattle, Jul 2-Aug 29 Critic Roger Cardinal first coined the term “outsider art” in a 1972 book that chronicled art of the mentally ill, mentally challenged and physically challenged. Greg Kucera has assembled some of the best and most recent such artists for a summer group show, I Taught Myself. The survey includes such luminaries as Loretta Bennett, a Gee's Bend quilt artist, James Castle, a deaf artist from Idaho who painted with chimney soot, and Bill Traylor, a former slave in Alabama who drew what he remembered and observed.
