Wednesday, Mar. 2, & Thursday, Mar. 3; 11am-6pm both days
“The campus community and public are invited to a sale of work by current students and alumni.
This year, BUY ART is working with Strange Coupling to create two very different events, offered at the same time, and sharing the same goal – support of UW Art majors and alums.”
Strange Coupling is, “a student-run tradition in the Division of Art for over a decade, Strange Coupling bridges the gap between the UW and the greater Seattle art community by pairing students with professional artists for a collaborative project. This exhibit shows the work of student applicants, which is auctioned to support this year’s projects. The selected students and their artist mate will be announced at the Friday evening event.
The 2016 jurors are Jen Graves, Melanie King (MA 2008), Catharina Manchanda, Amanda Manitach, and Jeffry Mitchell.
The professional artists are Iole Alessandrini, Michael Alm, Byron Au Yong, Zack Bent (MFA 2008), Coldbrew Collective, Alice Gosti, Lauren Iida, Stephanie Liapis, Francesca Lohmann, Emily Ann Pothast (MFA 2005), and Norie Sato (MFA 1974).”
I had entirely too much going on to participate in both events, but you can find my artwork for sale in the BUY ART event. There’ll be monotype and relief prints. You can quickly distinguish my work by the sales number, #25.
Also, on display will be the works of some crazy talented classmates such as E.R. Saba. Her sales number is #41. Keep an eye out!

This is a great chance to step into collecting, you’ll be getting in on the ground floor of Seattle’s up-and-coming arts community.
See you there, boo!
