I applied for and was accepted into the Kent City Summer Arts program which may lead to the purchase of this work for the city art collection. Which would be cool. I could stand to have my work being purchased.
The theme was environmental and they chose three of my images as part of the display. This is what they have to say:
Summer Art Exhibit Opening Gala on Wednesday, July 11 from 5:30 – 8:00 PM at the Centennial Center Gallery, 400 W Gowe Street in Kent.
It’s a fun party! Your $10 admission benefits arts and culture at Kent Cornucopia Days. Enjoy hors d’oevres, beverages, dessert and no-host bar / Listen to live gypsy jazz / Meet the artists / Purchase original artwork / Receive a festival poster signed by artist Susanne Kelly!
This year’s exhibit has an environmental theme, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Herbert Bayer Earthworks at Mill Creek Canyon. In addition to viewing the exhibit, you can adopt a “personal landscape” from artist Vaughn Bell + sew a sandbag for Brice Maryman’s “Chromatic Levee.” Both projects are part of 4Culture’s Site-Specific Performance Network. Something new, something fun!
Please join us! All ages welcome! Questions? Email csiegert(at)ci.kent.wa.us or visit www.KentArts.org
EDITOR’S NOTE: (as in, me) This event was cool AND the city bought one of my framed prints (an image from my Landfill Methane story) and the city ALSO offered a two-month solo exhibition. Cool!
