Arts at the Port's "Resonance" Fine Arts display was full of imagination, skill, and beauty. I highly recommend seeing it--each artist had multiple works and the space is stunning. Water flows beneath the dock, high ceilings, quiet spaces, and art. Volunteers apparently spend a week repainting the port building, cleaning it up, and it is an astounding amount of preparation to create a serene and calm place.
The Sumi artist, Hiroko Seki (spider web black and white below) won Best of Show, and it was her very first juried show--so exciting to share this experiences with her. (This was my second.) We will both have work in the new high school.
The Juror, Pablo Schugurensky chose works through photographs--it could have gone so wrong, and instead the work is incredible.
Here are some photos!
Happy to report that as of Sunday July 23rd, I will have art hanging in 3 cities:
Bellevue (the Department of Ecology; Overlake Hospital)
Burien (the Burien Community Center--this show is nearly done)
and Anacortes (opening the 29th, and the Arts at the Port activities are open August 4-6.
