Searching for Beauty: A Collaboration with the Aristides Atelier

Searching for Beauty: A Collaboration with the Aristides Atelier

The COVID Pandemic’s icy fingers reached into every institution worldwide…even museums and art schools. Quickly we had to rethink learning, seeing, making, and sharing. All these months later, there is a light at the end of this challenging tunnel and artist’s views of this time are revealed through pigment on canvas.  

Self. Family. Space. Light. Mythology. Love. Death. Patriotism. These concepts are explored and reflected in this year’s collaboration between Juliette Aristides Atelier at Gage Academy in Seattle and Maryhill Museum of Art.  SEARCHING FOR BEAUTY: Artists Views through the Lens of 2020/2021 will be exhibited through July 18 in the museum’s M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center.
