David and I went to see some exhibits at the Bellevue Arts Museum; the ceramics show, BAM Biennial 2010: Clay Throwdown!, is due to close in a few days. That was a good show – things to like, and not so much. Of course.
Most interesting (wonderful, wow!) is a solo show of April Surgent’s 14-foot wide “mural” style glass engraving. It’s composed of over a hundred 6 x 12” pieces of layered glass, engraved and looking like photographs. It’s really worth seeing. Even the “armature” holding the mural in place is amazing and impressive. Check out her site for pictures of the work and her process. April Surgent.
