Pioneer Square April 2019 - Preston Singletary
Instragram seems to be taking up a lot of my digital art time, but I thought I'd try to make a few entries on a more consistent basis. This blog is as much an art diary for myself as anything.
I made it down to Pioneer square this month and thought I post up a few of the highlights. The Illuminated Forest runs from April 4 - April 27
Preston Singletary has a stunning show at the Traver Gallery this month. It has been quite the honor to witness his growth over the decades. This example is Little Wing, blown and carved glass. I especially like the double layered glass on the wing.
Black Raven, blown and carved glass was perhaps my favorite piece in the show. The contrast of the glossy and matte finish really makes this piece.
A few mobile like sculptures appear in this show as well. This piece is Blue Wolf's Dream. The wooden sticks are actually cast bronze.
As with all of Singletary's shows, at least for me there appears to be something new to see. I'm curious as to where he goes with this. Certainly worth the visit, especially if you'r hitting the SAM as well.
Ginny Ruffner's show runs concurrently and I'll attempt to document it as well at a later date.
