This Weekend in Art

This Saturday, February 20, is the annual Artist Trust Benefit Art Auction at Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion.  A limited number of tickets are still available here, and a comprehensive preview of the works available for purchase may be viewed here.  I have work in the auction, along with some 180 other established and emerging local artists.  The proceeds make Artist Trust‘s vital support of Seattle’s visual art community possible, so dust off your checkbook and come on down.

Jennifer Zwick - The Dream

Also on Saturday is the opening of an exhibition by Eugene artist Rob Smith at TARL.  From the press release:

Rob Smith has taken the ritualistic album Locrian Invocation (1975) by the channeling harp virtuoso and healer Joel Andrews as a contradictory material riddle to be decoded. The works in this show abstract from the LP itself, using formal properties of reflection, bondage, and tethering to diagram the contradictions of such a project, and make them critically legible to the uninitiated.

A “fireside chat” is scheduled for 7 p.m. and the listening party begins at 8.  I’m disappointed that I’ll miss this stuff, but I trust the festivities are going on late into the night.
