ICON viewing

Oh, this opening at Fraker/Scott Gallery was so much fun! I love it when people get together to talk art...
and my friends come on down to share the fun! (Say hi to my pal Sarah, art aficionado.)
For the opening of the ICON exhibit, the gallerists placed the two halves of my diptych like the sides of a door frame...
 
with another memory piece above, like a lintel at the top of the door.
Some of the "icons" were more traditional (can you call contemporary art traditional?), like Tracy Fraker's "Madonna of the New York Shopper"...
 while others leaned more obviously toward pop culture, like the reimagined flag by Stephanie Nicoll Reilly...
and this photocollage transfer print by Iskra Johnson.
Great turnout for the opening, which was timed to coincide with Seattle's First Thursday Art Walk.
Such an interesting mix of people: hipsters walking their offspring, experienced art patrons, art students with more styling product than cash.
You can see my work all this month, but the next big event will be on September 24th, from 5pm to 7pm. That's the awards reception. My pieces are "... rich in history: thoughtful, funky and totally original," according to Tracy, on the Fraker/Scott Facebook page. Come see for yourself!
