Tel : 206.789.5707

Join Director of Collections, Exhibitions, and Programs Leslie Anne Anderson as she guides us through the newest additions to the Barbro Osher Gallery, Paper Dialogues: The Dragon and Our Stories and M(other) Tongues: Bodhild and Las Hermanas Iglesias.

About the exhibitions:

M(other) Tongues: Bodhild and Las Hermanas Iglesias

Featuring the work of a family of women artists with roots in Norway and the Dominican Republic, the artistic collaboration between Bodhild, Janelle, and Lisa Iglesias communicates a dialogic call and response between family members — a back-and-forth visual conversation where abstract motifs are translated from one medium into another. The exhibition includes an installation of hand-knit and woven works inspired by familial traditions.

Paper Dialogues: The Dragon and Our Stories

What happens when the Chinese and the Norse dragons meet? Paper-cutting artists Xiaoguang Qiao, Karen Bit Vejle, Emma Reid, and Layla May Arthur join forces to embark upon the same task: to look for dragons in their cultural heritage and make them come alive in a magnificent papercut.

Cost: Free for members, free with admission for general public. Space limited; RSVPs required
