"Friends and Connections: revealing Unspoken Truths"

Opening Reception: Feb. 14th, 6-9 pm
show runs through March 13
Blowing Sands Gallery
5801 14th Ave NW Seattle, 98109
(for directions go to www.blowingsands.com and click on the picture of the gallery).

This show is multi- layered in meaning as it asks the viewer to explore each artist’s expression of the notion of friends and connections, while also noticing the common symbols and themes that appear as a group. The artists come from all over the country, and most do not know each other except for an affiliation to artist Rebecca DeVere. “ I always wonder what common imagery and symbolism will be in all of the artist’s work, and the commentary that makes on our current culture”, says DeVere. The power in a group show such as this is in the greater meaning revealed unknowingly by the artists. -Lisa Lamoreaux
