Painting “Outside the Lines” Presents a Challenge For the 69thAnnual Seattle CoArts Juried Exhibit!
Painting “Outside the Lines” was the challenge issued for the 69thAnnual Juried Art Show, opening April 17th through May 31, 2019 at the Mercer Island Community Center. Seattle CoArts, the 130 member-strong artist community, responded when show chair, Janice Patterson, encouraged them to look at their work from a different perspective for this year’s exhibit. “We seldom realize how difficult it may be for artists, steeped in a particular style or technique, to take a different approach.The challenge produced fresh, expressive brushwork, changed form, use of different color and other experimental techniques,” by our artists.
Juror, Angela Bandura, selected 58paintings by thirty-nine artists working in a multitude of mediums, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, collage, colored pencil, mixed media, ink and pastel.
The Artists’Reception is scheduled for Sunday, April 28thfrom 2 until 4pm at the Mercer Gallery in the Mercer Island Event and Community Center at 8236 S E 24thSt, Mercer Is, WA, phone number (206) 275-7609. There will be a Silent Auction during the reception that features small original paintings donated by the participating artists. Proceeds from the auction will be used to support scholarships for emerging artists. Refreshments will be served and free parking is provided.
