Sisko Gallery, Seattle Washington

Small Works

November 24 - January 31

The Sisko gallery is pleased to present a selection of drawings and fine art prints (block and etching mostly) created by a circle of artists/friends for one another. The artists are all associated with the University of Washington art department and important figures in Northwest history. The displayed collection was sent through the regular postal mail and during the holiday season, so the holiday season is an ideal time to view them again. The works are from the 1940’s through the 1980’s. This was a pre-email and pre-twitter-era culture of people sharing images and words in a very personal way.

The artwork comes from the collection of the DuPen family, and proceeds benefit the DuPen Foundation. Artist include: Glen Alps, Ambrose Patterson, Guy Anderson, George Tsutakawa, Alden Mason, Philip McCracken, Paul Horiuchi, Robert Sperry, Ray Jensen and Everett DuPen.

Our gallery artists have made some special small works for the small works show in addition to the existing collection. The artist include: Nina Akamu, Michael Bergt, Aldo Casanova, Mel Curtis, Everett DuPen, Bill Evans, Ray Jensen, Chris Kroehler, Rand Jack, Phil McCracken, Frank Morbillo, Louise Peterson, Bart Walter and Bill Weaver.

Creatures 2009

October 8 - November 22

Sisko Gallery features animal sculptures by three animal sculptors from three different parts of the country with three very different approaches to the material and the subject. These three voices sometimes resonate and sometimes contrast, but together an excellent chorus.

Like Cats and Dogs

June 4 - July 19 | View Work

We humans have a complex relationship with cats and dogs. Dogs have been used to hunt and guard, and both species have been used for rodent control. Cats and dogs are also our companions, they live close to us, and they have entered into our story and myth and we often anthropomorphize them, such that the most prized animals are seen to embody a valued human trait (i.e., dog/loyalty) better than any human image can represent that trait.

Cats and dogs are domesticated animals, and as such owe their shape and character to a great extent to a history of human selection. People have shaped this animal, so the subject of Peterson’s work is already an artifact of culture (like art or architecture), and she engages the complex intersection of human and animal worlds.
