The Other Washington State by Angshuman Sarkar
Stop by during the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk on August 4 from 4-8PM for the opening of ."The Other Washington State by Angshuman Sarkar".
Spotlighting industrial landscapes of eastern Washington, artist Angshuman Sarkar's exhibition "The Other Washington State" is an exploration and tribute to the American landscape that is often less seen and infrequently talked about.
Washington state is divided by the mountains into two parts, splitting the economy, occupations, and lifestyles with it. The division is stark and is often excluded from the conversations about the state. Eastern Washington, being away from the economic hubs and ports of the West side has developed differently. Much of the economics of this part relies on the Columbia river and the Grand Coulee Dam. In the industrial and agrarian landscapes of eastern Washington, we can see many of the building blocks of the country – the ecosystem of human endeavor, engineering ingenuity, hard work and infrastructure. This series explores the not so often seen landscapes of the region.
"The Other Washington State" will be on display at Gallery 110 from August 4 – 27. The gallery is open to the public from 12PM to 5PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and by appointment.
