Davidson Galleries‘s biannual catalog is now online and in paper, and I am very pleased to be found on page 19, amidst some illustrious neighbors…

Ambiance: like Davidson Galleries’s collection in general, a seamless coexistence of old masters and contemporary artists with an eye for detail
We are now officially back from our Northern-Pacific-Coast road trip and the First Thursday Art Walk opening of Introductions at Davidson Galleries in Seattle. I was impressed with the turn-out in Pioneer Square and thankful that the rain stayed away just long enough to let the brick courtyard dry off and set the stage for a perfect evening art-viewing stroll.
Matt Rebholz was also at the opening, and it was good to hear about Austin, printmaking news, and other fun facts from him, as well as to meet Cara Forrler, director of the contemporary print and drawing center, who organized the show, and Sam Davidson, director of the gallery.
Here is one wall with some pieces from the Plus A Century portfolio:
At the show, I was drawn to Matt’s chine collé works and Carrie Lingscheit’s prints that used textures impressed in (what I am guessing) is a particularly delicate soft-ground. In the back room, a print that I had loved in the catalog by Hundertwasser, Painted Words, called out to me again – and in person this time – which was lovely.
Event: Introductions 2010
Venue: Davidson Gallery, Seattle
Dates: June 4 – June 26, 2010
Ambiance: warm-wooden floor, white walls, alternating artists, flat-files with secrets
Cara Forrler, director of the Contemporary Print and Drawing Center at Davidson Galleries will be introducing “three new young print artists working with the etching process to create visual narratives” on June 3rd. I am excited about being featured along with Carrie Lingscheit and Matt Rebholz (who happens to teach at UT in my hometown of Austin, TX). The show will be opening on that first Thursday evening for the Seattle Art Walk – Andrius and I are planning on driving up, so if you find yourself in the area, we’d love to see you.
Here’s a quick preview of some of the prints they chose before I shipped them. (Davidson is framing all the work, so it will be fun to see everything spot-lit and behind glass.)
Hoping for a beautiful evening two weeks from today…
