SAMANTHA SCHERER - Weathered
Artist Reception: Saturday, December 8, 3-5pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, January 12, 11am
In this new body of work, Seattle artist Samantha Scherer continues to explore the aftermath of conflict with a broader focus on human vs. nature vs. human nature. In particular, she is focusing on human resiliency in the aftermath of conflict and disaster, and the ways that people prepare for, respond to, and move through challenging circumstances. Continuing to work on an intimate scale, this exhibit will include a series of small, detailed graphite drawings made from collected media photographs in the wake of natural disasters.
Scherer has exhibited works on paper throughout the United States. She received her MFA from the University of Washington in 1997. Since that time, she has received 4 GAP Grants from Artist Trust (1999, 2006, 2009, 2013), and was an Finalist for the Betty Bowen Award in 2015. Her work is included in the collections of the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington, Seattle WA, the Microsoft Collection, Redmond, WA, and the City of Seattle Portable Works Collection, Seattle WA. This is our 3rd solo exhibit with work by Samatha Scherer. Scherer lives and works in the Seattle area with her husband and young daughter.
