SDA WA Members Activities

Surfacing features art by Washington SDA artists. While this past year of social isolation has been challenging, many of us have continued making art, often creating pieces that reflect a period that forced all of us to confront personal feelings and global issues in an unprecedented way. Now, we are finally beginning to surface. Yet the pandemic represents only one interpretation of Surfacing.
The word has a range of meanings, from calls for social change to personal reflection to looking at ourselves and the world in an entirely different way. And nowhere are we better able to express what Surfacing means to each of us than in our artwork.
The jurors selected 23 pieces from the submitted works to be included in the online exhibition shown in the Surface Design Association website. These featured pieces can be appreciated in this Surfacing link.
However, the creativity of all participants deserves to be celebrated. That is why this catalog shows all the works presented.
We Surfaced together these difficult times as an artistic community. This is our strength.

Let keep doing art together!
