Eclectic mix on display at Burien Arts Gallery during March
The Burien Arts Association is presenting a wide range of styles in its March exhibit at the new Burien Arts Gallery, located at 826 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien.
Titled, “Transformations,” the exhibit will feature three artists showing mixed media, encaustic, painting, ink and sculpture.
- Susan Darms‘ mixed media “sculptures” make you feel that you are seeing an envoy from another world.
- Reni Moriarity uses the traditional tools of sumi-e (rice paper, brushes, watercolor and ink stick ground by hand) to capture the essence of nature and everyday objects.
- Roxanne Taylor’s assemblages reflect the “wabi sabi” philosophy of beauty in the imperfect, the humble and the impermanent.
The opening reception for the exhibit is Thursday, March 6, 4-8 p.m., at the gallery. The exhibit runs March 6-30. The gallery is open Wednesday-Saturday, Noon-6 p.m. and Sunday, Noon-4 p.m. The gallery is closed Monday and Tuesday.
The mission of Burien Arts Association is to engage, enrich and entertain all the communities, generations and visitors to the Burien and Greater Highline area through creative and innovative arts programming. The non-profit was founded in the 1960’s and for years operated a gallery in the little blue house at Dottie Harper Park.
In fall 2013, Burien Arts opened an exciting new gallery in Olde Burien at 826 SW 152nd Street.
Current Burien Arts programming includes not only the upcoming Highline Classic Jazz Festival on Saturday, March 8, but also Shakespeare in the Park, Vision 20/20 Fundraising Art Event, monthly Sing and Sketch nights, quarterly arts networking meetings and the delicious Strawberry Shortcake booth at Burien’s annual Wild Strawberry Festival.
Watch for announcements of more exciting programming in the future.
