The Northwest Collage Society is presenting its winter show at the wonderful new Cascadia Art Museum in Edmonds, January 19 - March 26, 2017. CAM is a great addition to the local art scene; it opened its doors in late 2015 and offers a rich array of paintings, prints, sculpture and photography created by artists active in the Pacific Northwest during the mid-19th through mid-20th century time period. The art is stunning: the "Big Four" are here, of course (Tobey, Calahan, Graves, and Anderson), and there are quality pieces by many others. The physical setting -- a repurposed and beautifully altered former Safeway suppermarket -- is lovely, with crisp white walls and high, beamed ceilings. Go see it.
And, while you're there you can visit a side gallery that is hung with "Collaged Impressions of Northwest Social Realism and the American Scene 1930 - 1950." I have three pieces (below) in the show and one of them ("Carrie") was honored with the Eleanor Wolters Smith Memorial Award. Thank you NWCS, CAM, and juror/curator David F. Martin.
