From May 7th to June 27th, ArtsWest Gallery presents The Moon is Free, a group show featuring five artists exploring the internal logic of abstract painting. The artists include Lydia Bassis, Sue Danielson, Ken DeRoux, Koji Kubota and Junko Yamamoto. There will be a reception and artist talks on Thursday, June 11th from 6-9pm.
“What appeals to me, but can also frustrate me, is the central difficulty of abstraction: that while there may not be any “rules,” each painting develops its own internal logic, which cannot be known when the process begins.”
ArtsWest is also gearing up for the summer with their ArtsWest Performance Institute 2015 for kids and teens. Registration is now open. More information about the various summer programs offered can be found at the ArtsWest website.
For high school students interested in the Ensemble Generated Theater Project, “an intensive theater program…[where] students will collaborate to create an original production from scratch”, make sure to register as soon as possible. Auditions are being held now for positions in this program. Check out the ArtsWest website for more info. To register email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206.938.0963.
