Current & Upcoming Exhibits
Puget Sound Sumi Artists | July 23-September 7, 2018 Artists' Reception: Thursday, July 26, 6:30-8 pm
Experience sumi (Sumi-e), an Asian style of ink painting, through more than 50 original works. Founded in 1986, PSSA features more than 70 members dedicated to promoting understanding and appreciation of sumi painting and Asia calligraphy (shodo). A sumi painting portrays the “essence” of the subject. Artists work with traditional materials in styles ranging from traditional to contemporary in ink, color, or collage. PSSA artists exhibit extensively throughout the region as well as in Japan. Learn more about PSSA at sumi.org.
Northwest Collage Society | September 10-October 26, 2018 Artists' Reception: Thursday, September 13, 6:30-8 pm
Celebrate collage with works by the Northwest Collage Society. Artists Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso coined the term collage (from the French coller, meaning "to glue") at the beginning of the 20th century, when the art form became a distinct part of the modernist movement. Today, NWCS fosters appreciation for and interest in collage, the practice of assembling different media to create a distinct work of art. Members come from diverse backgrounds, including painting, printmaking, graphic design, sculpture, and glass and fiber arts. Learn more about NWCS at nwcollagesociety.org.
Please note: Artists' Reception dates and times are subject to change. Call 206-275-7609 to confirm.
