Envision Cascadia

Yesterday I view the exhibit "Envision Cascadia."

It is an exhibition curated by Jake Seniuk for the Port Angeles Fine Art Center that is now on display at Olympia’s Art In Ecology venue.

The show includes works in various media by 33 artists and is subtitled “Artists ponder the Homeland”

The exhibition will remain on display until the end of February.

On January 18 Arts Olympia members and guests gathered for a "Salon Conversation" about the works in the show.

I enjoyed the variety and expressions portrayed by the artists. My favorite pieces were the two sculptures. One was made of cardboard to resemble a large tree stump and the other was a table setting representative of the Pacific Northwest. I apologize for not writing down the artists and titles. Well worth the trip to the Washington State Department of Ecology Headquarters in Lacey at 300 Desmond Drive. This is off Martin Way, across from Top Foods.

An added attraction is art by Maitri Sojourner in the 2nd Floor Gallery. "Meet 'The Polyakovs' " will be on display through February 26th. This is a fabric collage series that illustrates a short story by her daughter, Andrea Mudd. Maitri has an open house on Friday, January 22nd from 3-6 pm. World traveler and storyteller Rebecca Hom will be telling stories starting at 5:15 pm.
