All Nine Legs exhibition at the Kirkland Arts Center

The Kirkland Arts Center will present All Nine Legs art exhibition through March 15. The exhibition brings together seven artists from around the country, over several generations and across diverse media.

The exhibition will feature an Opening Reception from 6-8:30 p.m. on Jan. 17, as well as a Curator Talk featuring readings from the writers in the group and a Q&A with artists on Jan. 18, at 1 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public and will feature food and drink. Artists will be in attendance at both events.

The painters, sculptors, writers and composers involved in the exhibition met in snow-covered Wyoming and first discovered, as they watched the world turn white through their window panes, a shared interest in storytelling. From each artist's ambiguous recollection, the public is invited to piece together a grander narrative for how we all cross paths, spend time together and time apart.The featured artists are Anne Connell, Beth Nelson, Eun Young Lee, Kate Kingston, Sarah Fagan , Radio Sebastian and Roger Feldman.

As curator Corwin Levi describes, the exhibit will explore the "power of ambiguity," compelling viewers to "complete the puzzle and finish the picture," much like the riddle of the Sphinx which inspired the exhibition's title. The exhibit will feature an array of large scale installation, sculptures, paintings, and writings, as well as music and video installations composed specifically for this dynamic display.

Fagan, a painter, looks forward to continuing the collaboration with this superb group of artists noting "the overall importance of residencies to participating artists and the larger community in which they are situated. We talked about connections much that month n Wyoming and continuing to work together seemed an appropriate way to keep that happenstance magic going." Both visually compelling and intellectually stimulating, All Nine Legs is bound to capture the public's eye.

The Kirkland Arts Center Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 620 Market Street in Kirkland. The gallery is free to the public and all ages are welcome.
