Exhibit: The 39 Steps

ExhLogoHoriz

January 9, 2016–March 5, 2017, artEAST and Village Theatre
Opening Reception Sunday, January 22, 5–6:30 pm, artEAST

Curator: Anna Macrae

artEAST is excited to be partnering with Village Theatre Issaquah, to pay tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece spy film, The 39 Steps.

Village Theatre strives to provide an influential center of excellence in family theater by producing top quality live performances. artEAST is delighted to bring together the visual arts responding to performance arts for this special open juried exhibition.

The 39 Steps is one of Hitchcock’s classic spy “whodunits”, which includes an exciting chase, murder, romance, and missing fingers. Village Theatre has added their own special twist of pure entertainment, with a riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft. The show will run from Wednesday, January 18 through Sunday, February 26.

Artists were asked to submit a broad range of artwork referencing this fast-paced thriller, by either capturing the classic era of the 1930s or playing with the mystery and magic of theater.

Participating Artists

Artwork will be on display at both artEAST and Village Theatre locations: please check websites for opening times.

Exhibit: Anything Goes

ExhLogoHoriz

November 3, 2016–January 24, 2017, Blakely Hall
Opening Reception Wednesday, November 16, 6–7:30 pm

Curators: Monique Catino and Anna Macrae
Guest Juror: Fred Lisaius

We are delighted to present Anything Goes — Within Reason once again this holiday season at Blakely Hall. This juried exhibition invites artEAST Members to submit 2-dimensional artwork for consideration. The subject matter is left wide open, to attract a broad range of material from some of our best established and emerging artists.

This year, we are also honored to have Fred Lisaius, working artist and art educator, as our guest juror. Fred will select three art pieces from the show to highlight and talk about during the reception. Fred is interested in exploring our connection to the natural world and each other, and is represented locally by the Patricia Rovzar Gallery. He is also an art educator and teaches classes in watercolor, acrylic and drawing. He says it is very rewarding to share his knowledge and passion for art and the art-making process.

It is always exciting to visit an “open” show: there are often some unexpected treasures to be discovered, as the work is not chosen to fit a particular theme. Please join us to see what your talented artEAST members have been creating.

Participating Artists

Gail Baker, Pamela K. Beer, Jill Drllevich, Diana Grant, Wanda Hickman, Pamela Holderman, Bonnie Johnson, Hiral Joshi, Jerry Kaufman, Kristi Kincheloe, Andrea Lewicki, Vikram Madan, Priyanka Parmananad, Lia Santini, Ann Elizabeth Scott, Cathy Simpson, Shelley Stroeve, Jan Tervonen, Katie Knoll Weaver, Season Yoshida
