Wunderkammer:  Artifacts, False Memories and Projections

Foss Waterway Seaport
Maritime Museum
Thursday, July 16 (evening reception) – August 29
Opening at Maritime Fest:
Saturday, July 18 (10-6); Sunday, July 19 (10-5)

“Wunderkammer: Artifacts, False Memories and Projections”,  curated by Lisa Kinoshita of Tacoma’s Moss + Mineral, is a contemporary exhibit inspired by the wunderkammers (cabinets of curiosity) first filled by early European voyagers, that expanded knowledge of the known world.

The goal of this show is to stimulate the viewer’s imagination in a direct way that is unusual in the Google age (but more usual during the Renaissance) through sculpture or mixed media work that forces the viewer to consider its authenticity, and/or reason for being.

This exhibition will be installed in the Seaport’s historic and inspiring Balfour Dock Building, renovated in 2014 by Olson Kundig Architects.

It was not easy to say goodbye to one of the most outstanding art dealers we have worked with but we are wishing Sandy Sardella a most enjoyable retirement after dedicating 25 years to handling glass artwork in three Colorado locations under Pismo Galleries.  We miss her more than we can say.

But!  The exciting news is that Eva Pobjecka, director of the Vail location, has reopened the gallery under the name Piece Gallery and she will be showing our work.  Her website will be available soon; we will keep you posted!

 

That’s all and Happy Summer!

“Ethnobotany” at Wright Conservatory -Tonight thru Oct. 12

THE NEWS TRIBUNE
September 4, 2014
by Rosemary Ponnekanti

Until now, art exhibits in the Wright Park Seymour Conservatory have mostly consisted of colorful glass art placed somewhat arbitrarily amid the tropical plants, one aesthetic step higher than garden decoration. Not so “Ethnobotany.”

Opening Friday, Sept. 5, with an artist reception, the 12-artist show is curated by the one person who could pull off something quite unique: Lisa Kinoshita. Her provocative mixed media installations have lately been matched by her funky terraria and plants at Moss+Mineral gallery.

“Ethnobotany” begins strikingly: glass duo Sabrina Knowles and Jenny Pohlman garland a palm with an enormous, golden glass fruit.
