Less than one month until ""Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect"" opens at #SeattleArtMuseum! Our poster features ""The Drifter"", painted by Wyeth in 1964. The subject, hard-luck drifter Willard Snowden, moves into Wyeths studio in 1958 and lives there for nearly fifteen years, frequently modeling for Wyeth, who enjoys painting him while Snowden regales the artist with stories.

Congratulations to Jono Vaughan, winner of the 2017 #BettyBowenAward! Vaughans ongoing series, Project 42, is named for the short life expectancy of transgender individuals in the United States. The project aims to raise awareness of a persistent pattern of extreme violence against trans people by commemorating 42 murdered individuals. For each work in the series, the artist designs a garment that begins with an image of a murder location, which is then digitally manipulated to create an abstract textile print. The garment is then worn by a collaborator in performance, as a form of memorialization and celebration of the victim. Join us for an award ceremony and reception Nov 9 at 6 pm in anticipation of Vaughan''s exhibition opening in April. #JonoVaughan #Project42 #SeattleArt [: Jono Vaughan, Documentation of ""Project 42 performance by Anna Conner at the Henry Art Gallery"", 2016, Commissioned by the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, Washington, Photograph by Jonathan Vanderweit, Courtesy of the artist, Jono Vaughan.]
