The Burien Community Center will be presenting the works of artist Robin Walker until the end of January 2017.

Robin completed an MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2010 and exhibits her work around the country.

Here’s more from her Artist’s Statement:

“My recent acrylic and ink paintings are a series of portraits. I interview each subject, asking them to tell me a story. Then I go on social media and appropriate elements of their profile image into the painting. The stories I’ve heard during this process have fascinated me, ranging from inspiring to highly dark and personal to the light drama of everyday human life. My goal is to create an expressive painterly version how these people are choosing to present themselves outwardly both in person and online. “

“A consistent element in my work is a sense of play. My hope is that the viewer can join me in celebrating the joy and freedom of painting.”

The Burien Community Center is located at 14700 6h Ave SW. It’s open Monday-Thursday, 8:30am-8:00pm, Fridays 8:30am-5:00pm, and Saturdays 8:00am-noon.

For more information please call Burien Parks and Recreation at 206-988-3700.
