Join Pivot’s newest team member Camille Coonrod for a slow viewing of Pivot Art + Culture’s current exhibition. Coonrod will begin with an introductory overview on how to interpret portraiture and then invite participants to sit in front of selected works for 10 minutes at a time. After slow viewing, the group will reconvene to discuss realizations, personal perspectives, and connections made to their own lives and learning.
About the exhibition: "A Closer Look: Portraits from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection" explores how artists seek to convey the essence of their subjects. The artworks included span continents, cultures, and centuries. The variety of artists on display offers something for everyone, from Pierre-Auguste Renoir to Ansel Adams to David Hockney and Georges Seurat. By presenting these enduring portraits, "A Closer Look" invites visitors to consider what qualities give these works their depth, power, and presence.
Portraits from a selection of Northwest artists are also on display comprising the complementary exhibition, "Implied Fictions." Featuring works by Holly Andres, Marsha Burns, Aleah Chapin, Scott Fife, Ann Gale, Susie J. Lee, Jim Phalen, Akio Takamori, Storm Tharp, Samantha Wall, Tariqa Waters, and Alice Wheeler.
