STAY: Art inspired by Architecture at VALISE Gallery April 7 - 29
Opening reception Friday, April 7 from 5 to 9 pm
Vashon's long-running collective gallery VALISE celebrates the arrival of Spring by hosting a very special exhibition of work by three of Washington State's most earnest and expressive artists: Lin Holley, Lori Duckstein and Denise Snyder. In their provocatively-titled show STAY: Art Inspired By Architecture, this harmoniously diverse trio presents work that reflects and refracts the artists' complex relationships with the structures, forms and implications of all things building-related.
Sculptor Lin Holley's speculative building forms reflect both her ongoing practice as an architect as well as the cultural influences of her many pilgrimages to Asia, and particularly the aesthetic of Japan.
Lori Duckstein’s lush, evocative paintings often include architectural elements in her work in remembrance of her architect father.
Denise Snyder creates bold structures of natural materials and has been strongly influenced by Scandinavian design. Her constructions soften and complement the man-made environment.
The artists will be on hand for the opening to meet and talk art with visitors on Friday, April 7 from 5 to 9 pm.
