The show focuses on several Northwest artists and their works from the Great Depression to post World War II. Many of these pieces are social commentaries on racial and class inequities of the period.
Running in parallel at the same museum is an exhibit of recent collages inspired by artists and/or artworks in the previously described show. It's titled, Collaged Impressions of the Northwest Social Realism and the American Scene 1930 – 1950.
I’m grateful that one of my collages (which includes paper cutting), Indra’s Net, was juried into this show. My collage was inspired by the bold graphic style of Fay Chong and by a Buddhist metaphor of our interconnectedness.
