Jacob Lawrence Gallery ‘OPEN’ exhibit features students

The Jacob Lawrence gallery will host a no holds barred, no rules exhibition of unbridled student talent Feb. 18-March 14. The annual show, called OPEN, was juried by Rock Hushka, curator of contemporary and northwest art at the Tacoma Art Museum. There will be an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 17, in the gallery.

The show looks to recognize those students who are pushing themselves, and the Seattle art scene, in new and dynamic ways. With no restrictions on size or medium, OPEN is certain to challenge the preconceptions of the place of formal art education in forming the next generation of leading artists.

The Jacob Lawrence Gallery is located in the north corner of the Art building on the first floor. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon – 4 p.m. All events at the gallery are free and open to the public. For more information call 206-685-1805.
