Open Interval
March 1 – 31, 2012
Curated by Rumi Koshino
Preview, March 1, 6 – 8 pm
As part of the exhibit series, HATCHINGS

A look at the conceptual work of three Seattle artists: D.W. Burnam, Gala Bent, and Garek Druss, Open Interval considers these artists’ visual forms as connected to their other non-visual practices.   In drawings, paintings, and paper collage, Burnam (a writer), Bent (a mother), and Druss (a musician) manifest the otherwise imperceptible traces of their artistic processes.

The visual works of Open Interval are the evidence of the vast and unique landscape that resides in each artist.

Artist and Open Interval curator, Rumi Koshino was born in Japan and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington.  Her work has been shown locally at Soil Gallery, Catherine Person Gallery, Form/Space Atelier, NEPO House, Roq La Rue, and Kobo at Higo.  Koshino will be part of a two-person show at Cullom Gallery scheduled for July 2012.
