“Dancing Surfaces” Exhibition
This call for art is closed.
This WA State SDA exhibition ran from Aug 7 – September 27, 2013.
What does surface design mean to artists in Washington State? Are there any areas that artists here are concentrating on? Is there any one particular technique that keeps showing up? In other words, what is the depth and breadth of the state of surface design in Washington? To answer these questions Surface Design Association –WA is mounting a juried show August-September 2013 at the Phinney Center Gallery in Seattle. The show is open to all SDA-WA members.

Juror – Trisha Hassler-Mixed Media Artist
Since childhood, Trisha has stitched, cut and reassembled everything that would hold still: clothing, baby quilts, costumes, pillows – even a sofa. After many traditional quilts, she became fascinated with construction techniques, improvisational quilting and incorporating alternative materials into her artwork. The evolution of Trisha’s fiber pieces has continued through personal experimentation, and the study of metal working with a sculptor friend. Many of the materials she incorporates are recycled or reclaimed, adding history and texture to her work.
Since 2000, Trisha’s artwork has been exhibited in juried shows, galleries and museums worldwide. She has also served on committees and boards with the commitment to raising appreciation of original artwork in her community.
Trisha lives in downtown Portland and works in her home/studio in a historic warehouse building that has been re-modeled to accommodate modern living. She loves the city environment and is a dedicated fan of urban life.
