Current Exhibition

Seattle Presents: Alison Foshee

November 17, 2014 — January 16, 2015

The Gallery will be staffed on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. — 2 p.m. (excluding the weeks of Nov. 24, Dec. 22 and Dec. 29)

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture is proud to announce the latest exhibition in the new Seattle Presents Gallery space located at the base of the Seattle Municipal Tower with regional artist, Alison Foshee. The exhibition will feature a visual explosion of extravagant floral arrangements, created out of common office supplies such as thumbtacks, staples and labels. Exploring the potential of everyday office materials, Foshee relishes the challenge of finding new meanings in objects that have become banal. In the process, she reveals something about the material's original function that informs its new shape and content.

Seattle Presents: Juan Alonso-Rodríguez

MY SWIMMING POOL

January 19 — March 20, 2015

I recently had a dream my job was designing swimming pools based on my client's favorite shapes and colors, so I've decided to temporarily make that dream come true.

I will be asking for simple drawings of what you (willing participants) would imagine your ideal swimming pool to look like and will create various sized paintings based on the audience's input. The finished paintings will gradually fill the walls of the gallery.
