In today’s changing art world, collaboration has emerged as a primary means of artistic production in the last 30 years. Indeed, the upcoming exhibition Cross-Pollinations is itself a collaboration between the City of Shoreline Public Art Program and the Shoreline Lake-Forest Park Arts Council.

According to Charles Green, author of The Third Hand: Collaboration in Art from Conceptualism to Postmodernism (U of Minnesota 2001), “The conventional idea of the lonely artist passively waiting for inspiration’s light bulb to be turned on” is no longer relevant to contemporary artistic practice.

Six artist teams and two individual artists whose process involves collaborative strategies will present a variety of media, including installation art, works on paper, glass, steel, photography, book arts, and sculpture.

Artists from Shoreline and the Puget Sound region include: Chaim Bezalel and Yonnah Ben Levy; Susan Gans and David Traylor; Meghan Lancaster; Anna Macrae and Flora Ramirez Bustamente; Lin McJunkin, Milo White, Anne McDuffie, and Ann Vandervelde; Opsins (Cindy Michelle Collins and Monica Lisette-Sanchez); The Portrait Collective (K.J. Bateman, Peggy Murphy, Cynthia Yatchman); Cynthia Yatchman.

The exhibition opens at 4:00pm on Saturday, April 23, 2016, with a panel presentation on artistic collaboration from 4:30 – 5:15pm. 

Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm through Friday, June 24, 2016.
