May 7 – 30
Paper Mill features unframed works on paper from over 20 artists from Seattle and beyond. Originally conceived of as a physical exhibition, Paper Mill was intended to feel like a living exhibition, with artworks rotating in and out of view throughout the month to create a dynamic viewing experience for our patrons and ensure that no two visits to the space throughout the month would be quite the same.
As the reality of cancellation/closure became more imminent, I instead opted to turn it into an online exhibition and host the works on our website throughout the month. Works from the exhibition will appear on this page beginning May 7 (our own small nod to First Thursday), and works will rotate in and out of the online exhibition at the beginning of each week until May 30th.
We are all too aware how COVID-19 threatens the existence of arts organizations and the careers of professional artists now and in months and years to come from the economic fallout. Supporting artists is more important now than ever, which is why I felt it necessary to continue to host Paper Mill in this alternative format. Gallery 110 is committed to the safety of our patrons and artists. Please join us in supporting the arts in these strange, strange times.
