Accepted into Museum of Northwest Art’s Live Auction
My oil painting “Following the Wrong Gods Home” has been accepted into the Museum of Northwest Art’s 27th annual live auction by juror Stefano Catalani, Executive Director of Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, and former Executive Director of Bellevue Arts Museum. This is quite an honor, since it’s more difficult to get into the live auction than the silent one.
The title of this painting comes from a line in U.S. Poet Laureate William Stafford’s poem, “A Ritual To Read To Each Other” and is part of my river stones series, an homage to the Skagit River and its importance to the survival of our salmon and resident orcas.
This year the auction is on Saturday, June 8, 2019, with a Preview Party on Friday, June 7, at the Museum of Northwest Art in LaConner, WA. Make your reservations now!
