Nancy Callan & Katherine Gray: The Clown in Me Loves You

Every day, through Sep 26, 10 am - 5 pm
Bainbridge Island Museum of Art Winslow (Seattle)
This is an in-person event

Callan (Seattle) and Gray (Los Angeles) present the results of a four-year-long collaboration in glass. They explore our collective experiences with—and reactions to—clowns. Whether found in childhood memories, in circuses and parades, among those we love, or in our political worlds, clowns seem to be everywhere. The artists use old Venetian glassblowing techniques to mine complex social commentaries. It may seem like light-hearted fun, but multiple layers of feelings and realities emerge. Paint-by-number portraits exude three-dimensional, fragile glass tears. Sad, solo clowns tease out our sympathy as well as affection. Surely some jest, while others smile wryly.
