Summer Shows

I’ll be in three local shows this summer!

IDEA Odyssey summer showHistory X Contemporary Y

Curated by the IDEA Odyssey collective, whose slogan is “historic neighborhood, contemporary art”, the exhibit asks us “to explore how our histories shape our contemporary understanding of representation and identity.”

This statement resonates with me, particularly with my recent work, so I was delighted that Trousseau was chosen. The show, juried by Mark Takamichi Miller, runs from June 20 to July 31, 2013 at Tougo Coffee, 1410 18th Ave, Seattle.

Inspired by last year’s flock of creative responses to armature, Valaree Cox and Julie Rackley are curating another round of herons at artEAST Art Gallery. I was honored to be chosen based on my work to date by the juror, Meredith Langridge Anderson.

I’ve been given a 2′ square piece of hardboard with this basic outline (left, a heron standing) cut out. See my post, Working Big, for progress reports as the work pulls together in time for the show in August.

This juried member show celebrates the past, present, and future, and was curated by past board president Shawn Ferris, current curator Joseph Roberts, and newly apppointed member liaison Chris Crites.

I was delighted to have my piece, Imprinted, chosen from the pieces I submitted. The show will open Thursday, July 18, 5-9pm, at the Georgetown location (5701 Sixth Avenue South) and run through mid-September.  I’m looking forward to the show and the contemporary art that CoCA supports.
