 Back  Vignettes | Washington | June – August 2016

By Matthew Kangas

CERAMICS INVITATIONAL: NATIONAL CLAY Traver Gallery, Seattle, Jul 7-30 Gallery director Jeffery Kuiper is assembling another of the national clay surveys that Traver has regularly hosted since the late 1970s. This time, abstraction and representation are mixed up with an anticipated life-size self-portrait by Tip Toland; rough, stacked vertical forms by John Balistreri; and figurative and abstract walls and sculptures by Omaha resident Jun Kaneko, along with works by 12 other artists from across the nation.

MARGIE LIVINGSTON: TOO SOON FOR HINDSIGHT Greg Kucera Gallery, Seattle, Jul 7-Aug 20 For her seventh Kucera show since her 2004 debut, Margie Livingston has new paintings on stretchers that have been dragged facedown on the ground, as well as cut-and-glued strips of painted canvas which accumulate into drenched stacks. With well-received solo shows in Los Angeles and Tampa, Florida, Livingston, now 62, is also attracting attention in group shows in Germany, China, Indiana and New York.

EMANCIPATING THE PAST: KARA WALKER’S TALES OF SLAVERY AND POWER Bellevue Arts Museum, Bellevue, Jul 8-Nov 27 Drawing from the art collection of industrialist Jordan Schnitzer, this survey of the 46-year-old former MacArthur Fellow displays three print portfolios that illuminate Walker’s hatred of dominant white culture in the U.S. Her themes of race, slavery and sexual violence are countered by black critics in an interesting book, Kara Walker No/ Kara Walker Yes/ Kara Walker? Go and make up your own mind.

RAVEN SKYRIVER Stonington Gallery, Seattle, Aug 4-28 For his second solo show at Stonington, Tlingit tribal member Raven Skyriver concentrates on glass interpretations of maritime life in the Salish Sea (a.k.a Puget Sound). The 34-year-old former member of the William Morris hot-shop glassblowing team has been influenced by Dale Chihuly’s original lifelike Seaforms. His sculptures of octopus, salmon, whales and otters avoid cuddly references in favour of graceful underwater movements caught in mid-moment.

DELOSS WEBBER: THE SCHOLAR’S STUDIO Patricia Rovzar Gallery, Seattle, Aug 4-Sep 4 With a growing reputation from a raft of gallery shows in Idaho, Ohio, New Mexico and London, England, Deloss Webber’s third show with Patricia Rovzar continues his unusual mixed-media sculptures. Cane, bamboo and reeds are seamlessly woven into and around cylinders, vases, rocks and baskets. With allusions to Japan and the North Africa and Spain of his childhood, Webber creates a neo-ethnic art all his own.
