(SEATTLE) – Body Language, a new exhibit that explores gestures, postures, and movement through art that celebrates the human figure, and opens on Saturday, September 21 with a reception from 1:30pm – 3:30pm at The Lakeshore, located at 11448 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle.
Local Artist, Robert Welsh headlines the exhibit. Pursuing passion through artistic expression is nothing new for Welsh, who spent his career designing automobiles for Ford Motor Company, then airplane interiors for heads of state and the world’s leading airliners while at Boeing Company. What is new to Welsh, who says that retirement has made him a fulltime artist, is putting his artistic work on exhibit.
“For me, the joy in painting comes when the struggles with drawing, design, value and color are finally subordinated to self expression and all my energy goes into making an emotional statement that hopefully makes a positive connection with my viewer,” said Welsh.
Body Language is curated by 2012 James Washington Artist-in-Residency Recipient, June Sekiguchi. In addition to Welsh’s work, Sekiguchi selected pieces from Seattle Artists, Ellen Borison, Kathy Gore Fuss, Stephen MacFarlane, Fiona McGuigan and Terry Slaton for the exhibit. Wine, hors d’oeuvres and live music accompany art at the opening reception. To attend, RSVP by calling 206-772-1200.
