Join Us for a Docent Tour of Bellevue Arts Museum
Dec. 4, 2013, 12 pm (meet at front desk)
510 Bellevue Way Northeast, Bellevue
Janet Kurjan, a docent at the Bellevue Arts Museum, is offering a tour to SDA members. There are several exhibits that will be of interest to fiber artists. She will start the tour with Isabelle de Brochgrave’s work, whose “central project revolves around recreating exquisite, life-size historical costumes and fabrics entirely out of paper.”
Next, the tour will move to three artists who focus on storytelling, Nate Steigenga, Cappy Thompson, and Anna Torma, in the Telling Tales exhibit. “Working within the boundaries of their chosen media – collage for Steigenga, fiber for Torma, and glass for Thompson – each artist strives to convey conversation or dialogue through the modulation and manipulation of purely visual components” – See more at: http://www.bellevuearts.org/exhibitions/current/telling_tales/index.html
If there is time, the tour will include Rick Araluce’s work. Araluce’s work is described as “ambiguous and often subtly disturbing, and the artist plays with scale and perspective to throw us off balance, creating a dual sense of wonder and uneasiness as he entices viewers to question what we are witnessing .“ See more at: http://www.bellevuearts.org/exhibitions/current/rick_araluce/index.html
Admission is free to BAM members. If there are at least 10 participants (who are not members of BAM), there will be a group rate of $6. Otherwise, admission is $10.
If you would like to attend, please email Janet at firstname.lastname@example.org. This tour is open to any Washington State SDA member.
