My recent trip to the Norton Simon last month resulted with me taking a moment to stop and notice just how many Degas bronze sculptures are in there collection. I do not believe that I have seen this many in one place. That includes a couple of trips to Paris!
Horses that I had not seen before.
A number of the pieces were cast posthumously, but nonetheless, it is quite a collection of I guess 20 or more. Yet another reason to hit the Norton Simon Museu...
Another Pioneer Square/Seattle show I found engaging was that of Evan Blackwell. This I believe to be an assemblage of smaller pieces from his Relics of Experience series. These are white porcelain organic objects (created not cast) such as bones and shells mounted in a stoneware case. I thought they all worked well together and are worth a look. Here's a link to the Foster White site.
A lot going on in the area for the month of October. Here's installment 1.
Artwalk. I thought that the best work of the month was at the 110 Gallery. Michael Abraham's work is fun and engaging. The man can paint, and has a wicked sense of humor and creativity. The show is title: Naughty
This is "Trump" from 2016. I'm not sure if that is a self portrait as a pantomime or clown in the background. A fun painting from a Canadian artist.
