I Am Ocean by Betsy Eby

Winston Wächter Fine Art is proud to announce our eighth solo exhibition with internationally acclaimed artist Betsy Eby. For years Eby has made her summer home on a small island off the coast of Maine. The ocean has been a constant companion and source of inspiration. With layers of thick encaustic, Eby creates frothy horizon lines and soothing layers of blue, translating the powerful presence of the ocean. This recent body of work captures the ocean’s ability to simultaneously calm and awe. I AM OCEAN is a tribute to the natural world, on which we all depend, and must learn to maintain and respect.

Betsy Eby has been exhibited widely across the United States and her works are held in the collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA, the Columbus Museum, Columbus, GA, the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA, and several United States Embassies around the world.

Join Betsy Eby and Gage Executive Director Stefano Catalani in conversation Saturday, December 15th, 3-4pm.

Storefronts Program – South Lake Union Artists

Storefronts South Lake Union presents the last round of installations in 2018 – The year is comprised of three rounds themed around the concept of building relationships with cities, people, and nature. In this third round we explore the works of artists exploring issues relating to nature- a study of terrain, habitat, and the systems that support or degrade the very ground we stand on. Join us in reflecting on the strength and fragility of our shared Earth.” – Hanako O’Leary, Storefronts Program Coordinator

September 1 - February 10, Museum of History and Industry

WW1 America

Empires were destroyed, millions perished, and the world was upended by a war meant to end all others. Making its West Coast debut at MOHAI on September 1, 2018 through February 10, 2019 WW1 America tells the story of one of history’s most remarkable moments.

The WWI era—1914 to 1919—saw America transformed. It was a time of wrenching extremes that pulled Americans between the poles of fear and hope, between deepening cynicism and broadening optimism. Through original artifacts, images, voices, interactives and multimedia presentations, WW1 America tells the extraordinary stories of Americans—both legendary and unsung—during this turbulent time.

“The City of Seattle welcomes this opportunity to explore the causes and consequences of World War I,” said Seattle Mayor Tim Burgess, “and also to salute the generations of veterans in our region who have served the nation at home and abroad.”

This powerful exhibit will coincide with the centennial of Armistice Day on November 11, 2018 the day the war ended and an especially important day of international observance in 2018 (known in the United States as Veterans Day).

Developed by the Minnesota History Center in partnership with the National Constitution Center, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, the Oakland Museum of California and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, WW1 America illustrates how the past can help us understand our nation and our world today.
