In association with the Smithsonian Institution


Seattle Pi: SEATTLE ARTS AND CULTURE Plain & Fancy EXHIBITION DATES: February 25 – March 21, 2020 RECEPTION: THURSDAY, February 27, 6 PM – 8 PM!

The Painting Center is pleased to present Plain & Fancy, an exhibition that makes visible connections between anonymous, traditional artisans of old order Pennsylvania Germans lent by the Historic Bethlehem Museum and Sites, and six contemporary mid-career artists with ties to the area. Traditional PA pottery, quilts, rugs and other artefacts are paired with the contemporary work of Leslie Fletcher, Jill Odegaard, Scott Sherk, Pat Badt, Rhonda Wall and Brian Wiggins.  Each artist has developed their work in highly personal and unique ways in drawing, fiber, painting, collage and sound. A sense of touch, texture and an affinity to materials can be found in the work of these contemporary artists.
