REI Pinnacle and Pints

What’s better than an evening of climbing? Grabbing a beer afterwards, of course! REI’s got you covered for both during our REI Pinnacle & Pints outing. Your evening will start at the REI Climbing Pinnacle where we’ll provide all the gear you need and an expert REI host/belayer. After climbing, we’ll conclude our evening with a short walk to one of our favorite local watering holes where we’ll relax as REI pays for the first round. The Climbing Pinnacle has routes for beginners and experts alike, so whether you’re brand-spanking new to climbing or climb every week, this is a great way to break the monotony of your weekday routine. So, what’s better than climbing and brews? How about climbing, brews and a Klean Kanteen Pint Cup to go home with? We got you covered there too. Age: 21+ (Photo I.D. required)

Reflect and Gather

Reflect and Gather
By George Rodriguez

Open Studio: April 8 – 24  (artwork under construction; studio open to the public)
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 25 @ 5pm
Exhibition Period: April 26 – May 18
Artist Talk: Saturday, May 1 @ 1pm

MadArt Studio presents Reflect and Gather by Seattle-based ceramicist, George Rodriguez. Rodriguez’s practice is rooted in cultural inquiry, in which mythological lore, color composition, architectural texture, and distinct ornamentation combine in sculptural form to reflect the varied influences of his own heritage and time abroad. In this exhibition, he expands his object-based practice to include intimate, immersive, installation-based works that embody his distinctive style but in new forms.

Reflect and Gather is a series of compact rooms, each comprised of over 1,000 handmade decorative relief tiles, and individualized through a variance in color, texture, and method of lighting. By stimulating the viewer’s visual faculty in an overabundance of ornamentation, Rodriguez creates an environment of disarming stillness and meditation. In addition to his collection of ornately-tiled rooms, he also incorporates a participatory component by leaving a solid wet clay room which records visitors’ movement and physical intentions within the space. Referencing the urban architectural plaza, the rooms are adjoined by a community gathering space created through an assemblage of decorative statues, columns, and benches. This will provide a space for visitors to congregate, reflect, and contribute to the installation.
