Masks featured at Duvall gallery
Carol Plaia starts with an idea or message and builds from there.
In celebration of autumn, Gardens and SunSpaces Gallery in Duvall presents "Masks, Dark Matter, and Things Obscured from Perception" Oct 11-Nov. 6. An opening reception is planned for Oct. 11 from 3-6 p.m.
This show by local and regional artists explores the awareness that much of what exists is unknown to humankind.
Artists included in the "Dark Matter" show will be:
- Carol Plaia who has been a maker of wearable art and costumes prefers to concentrate on what can be revealed or created rather on what can be hidden.
- Debbie Moore, Duvall, who also spends time in Wyoming, is influenced by African work, adding a voodoo quality. Her work also reflects the duality of living in two places, the western influence of Wyoming and the richness of cultures from the Pacific Northwest;
- Corky Storer, Maple Valley, metal-smith and maker of sculptural mask forms;'
- Dolly Meymand Lucento, Redmond, maker of masks using feathers, fur, wood, leather, and bone, expressing the connectedness between all people, the elements, and all living things;
- Ralph Bennett, internationally acclaimed Haida carver who now lives in Duvall;
- Jean Ferrier, Northwest Coastal art. Ms. Ferrier, a psychiatrist in a past life, brings stunning work which reflects her intellectual and artistic dance with the unknown;
- Kerstin McKee, Issaquah painter in oils, whose work is laced with elusive glances with the visibly "real."
