The Gallery at Towne Centre Presents: Combinations

Thursday, August 26, 2010

The Gallery at Towne Centre is proud to present a new show of painted and fiber artworks by two Seattle-area artists. Combinations features Seattle artists Jennifer Nerad and Hye Young Kim. Each artist uses paint and fiber to create visual messages and weave their unique stories. This new exhibit runs from September 1 – October 9, 2010 at The Gallery at Towne Centre. 

Join us on Thursday, September 16 from 5-7 pm for a special artist open house and Shoreline Chamber After-Hours event. This is your opportunity to meet the artists, ask questions about their art, mingle with Shoreline area business leaders and enjoy some refreshments.

Special Event: Arts Crush: The Culmination of the Combinations Exhibit. The Gallery will be presenting a final reception for this extraordinary exhibit on Friday, October 8 from 4-6 p.m. in partnership with Arts Crush. 

This October, Theatre Puget Sound will present Arts Crush, a month-long festival that connects artists and audiences with invigorating new experiences at hundreds of events across the region. More than 200 arts organizations and innumerable artists from all over the Puget Sound will come together as a united arts community to share arts experiences with people of all kinds. For more information on other Arts Crush events in the month of October please visit the Artscrush webpage.

From the Artists’ Statements:

“In my work, I search for a level of abstraction that balances on the edge of incomprehensibility and tiptoes among misunderstanding. I aim for a point at which any less would make it unrecognizable, any more is superfluous. I use sparsity and lessness as tools to lead me towards this end. Sometimes I use sketches or photos as references, but most often I rely on memory and intuition to create images that are meaningful to me. “

“I have been questioning human existence by presenting physical and psychological human traces with art practice. The work acts as a recording of an individual’s daily routines, tracing of my own body engaged in everyday habits and rituals. My large-scale acrylic paintings incorporate yarn and dyes, and explore my own notions of a private domestic existence.”

The Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday 12-5 on the lower level of the Lake Forest Park Towne Centre. The address is 17171 Bothell Way NE, Suite A-141, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155.
