Navigate, an exhibit of contemporary encaustic works
NAVIGATE_PC_front This autumn, I have been working with a wonderful group of artists and writers, as well as a talented and visionary curator to prepare a ground-breaking exhibit of encaustic work by Seattle-area artists, each a graduate of the Artist Trust EDGE program. This show, Navigate, opens on Thursday January 2, 2014 and is up through February 2.
The exhibitions curator, Deborah Kapoor, herself a fabulous encaustic artist and teacher, was commissioned specifically for this show by the curators of the Corridor Gallery in Pioneer Square's Tashiro Kaplan building. A simple question led to the curation: "Why are artists of the 21st century drawn to this material?"
Kapoor leveraged her significant network to put together an event and materials to lead us through a guided exploration of this topic. The result is an exhibition by five artists with companion writings by three authors. In addition, the show is structured like a guided treasure hunt: follow the clues in the catalog articles and track the accomplishments of each artists' journey, through to the conclusion of this compact exhibit.
NAVIGATE_PC_back My artwork from the Celestial Visions series is featured, along with work by Joy Hagen, Kim Kopp, Holly Ballard Martz and Kevin Piepel. Kapoor has written the introductory notes, followed by brilliant and scholarly articles by Stephany E. Rimland and Lisa Pollman. The printed 20-page full color catalog is available for $10 here. Digital downloads are free.
One final note: I was fortunate to have the opportunity to collaborate on the graphic design and production of these fabulous catalogs and invitations with Deborah Kapoor.
Please join us for the opening, January 2 from 5-9pm during First Thursday in Seattle's Pioneer Square. There will also be a private, by-invitation-only reception in mid-January. If you're interested in receiving an invitation to the private reception, please let me know.
View, purchase or download the exhibition catalog here. Enjoy!
