I received some good news yesterday that I had a piece accepted into the 2017 Center on Contemporary Art's 2017 member's show entitled, "Make America Create Again".  The piece to be included is a recent work from the And/Or Series entitled, Now or Never (Fatigue). I look forward to the show, which is during April 6-29 in the COCA Gallery in Pioneer Square.  I haven't shown in Pioneer Square for some time.

I had a recent workshop at the Gates Foundation in downtown Seattle, right by Seattle Center.  While moving between venues, I stumbled upon on of Marie Watts' Blanket Stories sculptures.

This particular example consisted of blankets from the employees of the foundation, and included these guest books with comments.

 Here is a closeup of the tags that are attached to each blanket, documenting the origin of the item, who it belonged to, and other details.

I hit the February Artwalk on a cold Thursday night!  Reporting mostly on Foster White Galley since that is where I took most of my photos.

 A fun wall piece by Evan Blackwell entitled Clear-Cut.  That is a small mirror in the center "hole".

This ceramic piece, entitled, Lion is by George Rodriguez.  It is quite sizable at 43 inches in height.  George seems to be a favorite at Foster White.

 Another well know artist exhibiting is Ton Angel.  This is a bronze...

Archipenko - A Modern Legacy in a show not to be missed!  This exhibition snuck up on me and I really wasn't aware of it until I was there for the opening reception.  Alexander Archipenko is of course a celebrated Ukranian sculptor/painter from the early to mid 20th century.  I've been fortunate to see a number of his sculptures in my travels but I've always been taken by his wall sculptures.

This one is a dandy! Quite large at 38 in. x 84 in. It...
