ZINC contemporary is proud to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Barbara Robertson. Robertson cites an early reverence for science, geometry and the natural world – drawing inspiration from repeating patterns that emerged from her grandmother’s quilt-making by hand – and signaling a universal order to her world. Raised in the Ozarks of Southern Missouri, the artist connects with the mathematics of natural objects and organic forms – finding balance and symbolism within a crystalline, cube, and columnar rock structures. After moving to Seattle to earn her Master’s of Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington, Robertson began noticing the disappearance of her new city’s architectural heritage – as it was swiftly replaced by industrialized slabs of steel and concrete. Her geometric, architectural-based 2D and 3D works and animated films, seek to respond to the role of the built environment – much as the centuries-old art and architectural movement of Constructivism once did. In fact, the artist finds many parallels between the technological progress that occurred after World War I, and our current detachment from the environment and motivation towards technological advancement.

Fiber Fusion Exhibition Opens at Schack Art Center March 9th http://sdafiberfusionshow.org/ The show consists of 134 pieces from seventy-eight surface design artists and members of the Surface Design Association, an international organization of over 3,000 members. Fiber Fusion jurors were Layne Goldsmith, University of Washington Professor Emerita of Art and past chair of the Fibers Certificate Program, Young Chang, MFA in Fiber and Owner¬¬ of Gallery IMA in Seattle, and Rock Hushka, MA Art History and Director of Curatorial Administration, Tacoma Art Museum. The artists represent 39 Washington cities and towns. Artist techniques include fabric manipulation, hand and machine embroidery, painting, wet felting, shibori, bojagi, and botanical dyeing. Some of the unusual materials used include stainless steel, sock monkeys, gunpowder, vintage kimono, acrylic, newspapers, sand, wood, gut and hair. This is the culminating show of Fiber Fusion, a year-long juried travelling exhibition and celebration of textiles and surface design techniques at the Schack Art Center in Everett. The exhibition will be opening at the Schack Art Center on 2921 Hoyt Ave, Everett, WA on March 9th, 2017 with a reception from 5-8PM and runs through April 15, 2017. Local artists selected--SDA juried artists local to the area include: [Christina Fairley Erickson, Bellevue; Gale Whitney, Bellevue; Crystal A Edwards, Redmond; Maura Donegan, Issaquah; and Rebecca Wachtman, Renton.] Photos of their work can be found at http://sdafiberfusionshow.org/accepted-artists/ Where we have traveled to -- The show has travelled to three previous locations: Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend (February. 2017); VALA Art Center in Redmond, WA (November-January, 2017; and Allied Art Center in Richland, WA (June, 2016). This is the culminating show of the traveling exhibition. Workshops scheduled -- Concurrent with the show, the Schack has scheduled several classes and workshops on a variety of surface design techniques with SDA members including tapestry, textile printing, silk painting, baskets and batik. See the SDA blog post at https://surfacedesignwa.com/2017/01/24/sda-wa-member-activities-february-2017/ or the Schack class list http://www.schack.org/classes/view/medium/fiber-arts/ What is surface design -- Surface design art uses elements like dyeing, painting, printing, stitching, embellishing, quilting, weaving, knitting, beading, felting, and paper making— or that in some way manipulates or alters the surface of a “textile." A textile is defined as any material that takes on the properties of cloth. Work can be functional or non-functional, and can be for the wall, the body or as decoration. The Fiber Fusion exhibition is underwritten by the Surface Design Association and sponsored by Blick Art Materials. The Surface Design Association is a non-profit arts organization founded in 1977 and is comprised of artists, students, educators, gallery owners and curators. It has 180 members in Washington, and over 3,000 internationally. Follow the links for more information about Fiber Fusion or the Washington State Chapter or www.facebook.com/surfacedesignwa/.

Washington Nonprofits is hosting a nonprofit workshop in Seattle, presented by Nancy Bacon, Associate Director of Washington Nonprofits, and Lee Harper, Executive Director of Phinney Neighborhood Association. It is an opportunity to learn about the best practices for strengthening your organization in order to better achieve your mission, as well as to network with local nonprofits and others interested in or connected to the nonprofit sector. Join your local nonprofit network on, Saturday, September 21st at the Phinney Neighborhood Association. Event starts at 9:00am and ends at 3:00pm. Registration is $30, with light breakfast and lunch provided. Cost should not be a barrier to participate. Please contact us if you have any requests, concerns, or questions. Your organization exists to make a difference. During Tools for Running an Effective Nonprofit, we will cover the basics of running a nonprofit. We will draw on tested tips and tools, including Washington Nonprofits' four learning toolkits on boards, finance, law, and planning. You will leave with concrete next steps on how to strengthen your organization to better achieve your mission. Join us on this road trip to a strong nonprofit! Topics will include: sustainable sizing; legal and finance information; budgeting; program design; volunteer management; fundraising; and grant readiness. This workshop is designed for board, volunteers and staff of smaller organizations. Anyone who wants to know nonprofit basics and have concrete actions to move their organizations forward will find something in the day. While a team is not necessary, it is helpful to have at least two people from an organization. Washington Nonprofits was founded in 2010. As the state association for all nonprofits, Washington Nonprofits makes sure nonprofits have what they need to succeed through learning, advocacy, and collaboration.
