Internationally renowned artist Scott Fife is one of the 14 artists included in the “Heads (dis)Embodied” exhibit on display at the Kirkland Arts Center now through July 3.

The exhibition highlights how the artists collectively utilize the head to address and embody issues, such as race, death, age, popular culture and self-identity. The artists’ choice of materials – ceramics, wood, cardboard and glass – are as varied as their concepts.
