In June, “The Danny and Dot Show,” a feast of art, homey and wildly original, arrives at VALISE. Food paintings on reclaimed Pacific Northwest wood by member artist Dot Cherch are each inspired by the memory of an important person and a comforting eating moment. Burien artist Danny Mansmith’s fabric constructions are stitched by hand and by sewing machine in abstract patterns and images of faces, trees and hands. His grandmother inspired his sewing and got him started making art.

The show opens on Friday, June 7th and will run through June 29th.
