The art chosen for this year’s show asks viewers to let go of preconceived divisions based on gender, the separation of art from craft, audience from artist, institutions from community life. The exhibit features quilts, pottery, beadwork, sculpture, painting, photography, basketry, and other work by students, faculty, and a wide range of artists from throughout the Northwest. Faculty Art Curator: Joanne Mulcahy. Student Co-Chair Brooke Noli.
