Here are a couple of local exhibits with work by Saya Moriyasu this spring.
February 6 – May 17, 2015
Curator’s Perspective: Magic Windows/Framing Place
Whatcom Museum, Bellingham, WA
Dreamy interiors, surreal landscapes, cosmic visions: these themes are highlighted in a diverse exhibition that traces the way artists represent multiple worlds of reality and experience. The paintings, drawings, photographs and sculptures, drawn from the Whatcom Museum’s growing permanent collection, evoke places both real and imagined. View this exhibition at the Lightcatcher Building.
March 28 – May 3, 2015
The Alice, Seattle WA
Wrappings is the second exhibition at the newly formed contemporary art space The Alice, located in the Seattle neighborhood of Georgetown. This exhibition features 3 artists, Saya Moriyasu, Colleen Hayward and Justyn Hergreberg. These three artists use materials that are often not seen as art materials, such as seed beads, staples and nylon. Saya will show her newest artistic endeavor of intricately beaded and woven necklaces. Colleen will be exhibiting new paper rock sculptures that are made from ink paintings and staples. Justyn will be exhibiting a series of collage paintings made from pennies, cardboard and nylon.
