There are several shows opening tonight in Pioneer Square.  At SOIL, member artist Renée Rhodes contemplates emergent systems by producing photographic and video images of human flocks.

Here at Davidson Galleries, there is an exhibition of New York artist Miki Lee‘s gouache drawings of multicolored zig-zag lines that pleasantly remind me of these pants I made for my Cabbage Patch Kid when I was little that had every inch covered with ric-rac (which I still think is a great idea.)

Back in the Antique Print Department, I’ve been hard at work mounting a huge exhibition of works by Antonio Frasconi.  Raised in Uruguay by Italian parents, Frasconi emigrated to the U.S. in 1945. One of the leading graphic artists of the 20th century, Frasconi is known for his hand-printed woodcuts, illustrations, and posters.  There are excellent examples of his work from over five decades in this show.  If you’re into woodcuts at all, you won’t want to miss it.
