Hi SDA-WA! Here are some more activities from (and for) our wonderful members!
CAMERON ANNE MASON
July 7 – 23, 2016
Opening First Thursday, July 7, 2016 6 – 8 pm Artist will be in attendance
Foster/White Gallery is pleased to present a new exhibition with local textile artist Cameron Anne Mason.
The theme of nature and the evidence of human hands upon it permeates Mason’s work like the dyes used to color her hand-worked silks and velvet.
Deeply rooted in the Northwest Coast, Cameron Anne Mason’s relationship with nature is as much a part of her life as the artwork it inspires. Through deep meditations on our changing environment and by looking closely at our natural geography, Mason ardently layers and stitches her impressions into each sculpture. Her latest series, Branching, honors the history of the cloth she works with, embroider- ing stitch upon stitch parallel to a tree’s rings of growth.
Mason has been exhibiting her sculptures with Foster/White Gallery for several years. Her background in theater arts has also encouraged several installation projects throughout Seattle, including SAM Set the Table, MADArts, COCA’s Rootbound, the Bellevue Art Museum and this summer’s Bellwether sculpture exhibition at Bellevue City Hall. Mason has most recently been selected by Chateau Ste Michelle as the featured artist of their 2013 Artist Series Meritage to be released later this year.
Cameron Anne Mason’s work is in public and corporate collections throughout the Pacific Northwest and broader United States.
Mary O’Shaughnessy has a show of her new collage series: Hand Made Paper, Tea Bags, Image Transfers at Frame Works in the Under Town of Port Townsend (211 Taylor Street, suite B5).
Her art will be shown from July 2nd through July 30th, Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm. She’d love for you to stop by and check it out!
