For this year’s young artist showcase at the Ver(A)rt Gallery, NW Folklife presents six Northwest artists who have incorporated their perspectives with Seattle Center’s Next Fifty theme and sustainability. The Next Fifty places us at a crossroads, looking to where we are going as a Northwest Community. Who better to show us that way than the younger artists of our region? With emphasis on the hybridity of pieces, the convergence of past and future, and the use of found or recycled material, these artists address their experiences, perspectives, hopes, and observations of the world around them.
Artists are Brandon Vosika, Jimmy Hickey, Kaillee Coleman, Kaylee Jacboson, Sabe Lewellyn, Sonya Stockton. Curated by Paige Ervin of NW Folklife in partnership with Ver(A)rt Gallery Committee.
Closing the gallery show will be a reception on Monday, May 28th, 6:00-8:00 PM in the Vera Project. The reception will showcase three young Northwest bands,Honora (participant in this year’s SoundOff! competition), The Brass Monkey Band, and The Grizzled Mighty.
