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.
