This show celebrates our famous Seattle rain. Using an umbrella as an armature, five artists have given us their creative interpretations paying tribute to its iconic form and function.
These artists have used their freedom of expression to embellish or create a new piece of artwork built around the umbrella. They considered its symbolism, metaphors for protection, its classic structure, its place in history and its orientation for making and displaying to bring us this unique 3 dimensional exhibition.
This show runs in parallel with Call of the Clouds, primarily shown at our satellite exhibition space, Blakely Hall in the Issaquah Highlands, which features 28 artists. Eight Cloud artists will also be showcased with this exhibition.
