September 1 – October 1, 2022
Artist Sally Ketcham’s collection of mixed media, painting and collage reflect both childhood and recent pandemic time spent on the beaches in the Seattle area. She uses found objects and inspiration from our loved but stressed local waterways as her starting points. While for Sally these pieces reference the transformations and challenges in the marine ecosystem, the work overall is about materials and process. The joy and the meditative qualities are in the finding, the arrangement, and in the making.
Some of the works presented are imbued with personal meaning and/or political connotations in the mind of the artist, but at the end of the day the objects are litter and the paint is plastic. The intent is that the formal tensions at play within this exhibition mirror that of loss, hope, decay and regeneration.
Floatsom/Floatilla will be on display at Gallery 110 from September 1 – October 1, 2022. The gallery is open to the public from 12PM to 5PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and by appointment. Or stop by during the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk on September 1 from 4-8PM.
