Beautiful Sculpture Artists

I recently enjoyed an afternoon at the
Bellevue Art Museum. It’s one of favorite
because rather than having a permanent
collection, they change out their exhibits
on a regular basis. With its unique focus on
art, craft and design, BAM features extraordinary
works by Northwest artists while bringing national
and international exhibitions to the community
as well.

This month features amazing wood sculptures
in an exhibit Fragile Fortress by Dan Webb.
I kid you not, all of his work is carved out wood.

And just as wonderful is the exhibit
Life by the acclaimed ceramicist
Kathy Venter. The exhibit highlights
the artist’s signature life-sized sculptures
exploring the universal narrative of human
existence. Her work engages with her own
life experiences alongside an array of
historical sources featuring a provocative
surface treatment.
