Masters of Disguise:

 

On Masks and Faces

 

Opening Reception: First Thursday June 4

6-8pm

Exhibit Runs June 4 - 28

     

 

Each year Stonington Gallery presents one or two large themed group exhibits that showcase the astonishing variety of styles, skills, and imaginations of artists living between Northern California all the way up to the northernmost tip of Alaska.

This year, we are proud to present an exhibit that focuses on the myriad ways in which we represent the human face, in Masters of Disguise: On Masks & Faces.  Traditions of masking are found all up and down the Northwest Coast, from the subtle and realistic portrait masks of the Tlingit people, to the fantastic and famed transforming masks of the Kwakwaka'wakw. But masks are not all about tradition: we use the art of masking when we face the outside world, we show different faces to different people, and we find ourselves transforming throughout the course of our lives.

Join us as we explore the moods of masks in this exhibit of the very best contemporary artists on the Northwest Coast. Participating artists include Qwalsius Shaun Peterson (Puyallup), Greg Colfax (Makah), Phil Gray (Tsimshian), Susie Silook (Inupiaq/Siberian Yupik), Scott Jensen (Non-Indigenous), Larry Ahvakana (Inupiaq), Preston Singletary (Tlingit), Joe David (Nuu-chah-nulth), Trevor Hunt (Kwaguilth), Tom Patterson (Nuu-chah-nulth), Courtney Lipson (Non-Indigenous), Robert Barratt (Non-Indigenous), Drew Michael (Yupik), Art Thompson (Nuu-chah-nulth), and others.

Stonington Has Moved --

But Not Far!

 

Stonington has moved two doors down the block: from 119 S Jackson to 125 S Jackson. The view and the venue has changed, but the vibe has not: we recommit ourselves to honoring and exhibiting the highest quality works from around the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
