Joey Veltkamp


Drawing from his years of commuting on 520, Joey Veltkamp references the commuting landscape as viewed from a much-traversed daily route in this quilt. Interweaving national politics and local identity Veltkamp often quilts imagery that is both light and dark, poignant and humorous. Whether you love or hate them, the Blue Angels are a polarizing tradition that takes place in the liminal space between two cities.

Joey Veltkamp makes queer folks art. After twenty years in Seattle, he recently relocated to Bremerton, Washington. He likes roses, making jelly, and swimming in Lake Washington.
