There are lots of visual art events going on in and around Seattle tonight, and unfortunately they are scattered all over the place. A few of my favorite local artists (including Shaun Kardinal, Aubrey Nehring and Sharon Arnold) are in Bad Words, a group show curated by Chris Crites that opens tonight at the Twilight Artist Collective in West Seattle.
At Kirkland Arts Center, Off the Map opens, curated by Jill Hardy as part of the KAC’s Emerging Curator Initiative. I already have a copy of the catalog for this show, and it looks interesting, with works by Matthew Picton, Maya Lin, Claude Zervas and others.
At Grey Gallery and Lounge, Parallel Universes opens tonight. Curated by Francisco Guerrero and Joe Park, this exhibition compiles never-before-seen works by a variety of artists, revealing “facets of the creators that aren’t generally associated with their usual oeuvre.” Joey Veltkamp has the full info over on Best Of. Nearby at Vermillion is an exhibition by Friends of the Nib.
Also in Capitol Hill is Outside the Time Zone opening at the Kymata Project Space from 6 to 8 p.m., an exhibition of objects and conceptual works related to the act of homecoming, travel and displacement and featuring new work by Adam Taye, Garek Druss, Chris Burnside and Ben Needham.
Finally, don’t forget to stop off at the Bus Stop for the last (ever?) PENETRATION. After tonight, Dumb Eyes, the creative minds behind the popular monthly DJ night, are taking some time off for other projects.
