Pleased to announce a panel discussion at Cullom Gallery in Seattle Sunday, April 21st, at 2 pm, with Shannon Durbin, Vaughn Bell, and Mugi Takei. Drawing on themes in Durbin's gouache drawings of forest fires that are on view at Cullom Gallery through April 27th, these three Northwest artists will introduce us to the place that nature and the environment inform their art making. With questions posed by one another and special panel moderators, the conversation will also touch on contemporary perceptions of the environment - a blurry mix of personal memories, historic representations of nature, and an uneasy awareness of the gathering facts that quantify the earth's degradation - and what this all means for future representation of nature in the visual arts. Join us on Sunday the 21st, at 2 pm for this free event.
