Open Studio inauguration
40 painters from Washington and British Columbia will gather
at the premiere of the Open Studio in Blaine, Friday, July
13, 7 p.m., in an exhibition that celebrates freedom of
expression and Art Without Borders.
The Open Studio is an entirely different kind of gallery where the value of art and the artist is not based on money or national origin. We celebrate the passion and pleasure of creating and collecting art, said Open Studio organizer, Dolores Jordan.
Painters from Seattle to Dawson Creek in Northern B.C. will take part in the program, which begins with a gala premiere with music and many of the artists in attendance Friday night. Everyone is welcome and there is no admission charge.
Art Without Borders is the inaugural event of the Open Studio and will run to August 31, 2001, at the gallery on the main floor of the Trade Center at 808 Harrison Avenue in Blaine. The gallery, which is provided by the Kenneth L. Kellar Foundation, supports emerging and professional painters and celebrates freedom of expression between artists across borders.
