A Sense of Place II examines themes of home and the familiar as imagined by a collective of 10 local artists working in photography, painting, printmaking and mixed media. The exhibition, opening on Nov. 5, was juried by Juan Alonso and features artists of the IDEA Odyssey Collective. IDEA is a visual arts collective dedicated to supporting artists of color and artists who explore culture, identity and diversity in their work. The exhibition will be installed in City Hall until Jan. 3. There will be a public reception from 4 to 6 pm on Nov. 7.
Juan Alonso says the works he ultimately selected, “reflect a specific time or place that triggers a universal longing for the idea of home and each artist provides us with their unique sense of the familiar.”
A Sense of Place II includes work by co-founders Minh Carrico, SuJ’n Chon and Carina A. del Rosario, as well as Michele Domingo, Victor Fuentes, Kathy Liao, Jo Moniz, Darius Morrison, Gregory Schaffer and Robert Wade.
The City Hall Lobby Gallery, 600 4th Ave., is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call (206) 684-7171 or visit www.seattle.gov/arts.
