Kirkland Arts Center is proud to present the fifth installment of its biennial contemporary ceramics exhibition, Clay? V, juried by University of Washington, School of Art Professors Doug Jeck, Jamie Walker, and Akio Takamori. This international exhibition explores the versatility of clay as a medium of artistic expression. Showcasing a range of sizes, scales, subject matter, and techniques, the artwork of Clay? V is both a testament to the enduring legacy of clay and future of the field. Come see the show and marvel with us: could that really be clay?
GENDER PERSONAL: Exploring Gender Variance Through Art
Gender Personal is the work of Seattle artist Jacqui Beck, whose paintings have been exhibited in dozens of shows, and who was awarded first place in the 2013 “Women Painters of Washington, Finale!” exhibit.
Inflorescence: a group or cluster of flowers growing from a common stem in a characteristic arrangement.
Like the architecture of inflorescence, this exhibition is an arrangement of works growing from a common theme. Each of these seven artists has his/her own aesthetic, but all are inspired by the plant world.
