The Gallery at Shoreline City Hall - Closed
The Public Art Program extends sincere apologies that all indoor exhibitions are closed until further notice. We are planning to adjust the schedule later in the spring with tentative art openings beginning again in early June. Our deadlines for Art Calls remain in effect and we are moving forward with our “Voices in the Forest” project as well as our Residency program at the Art Cottage at Saltwater Park / Richmond Beach. We anticipate making replies and offers in mid-April for poetry and by early May for the Residencies.
Notations by Lucy Garnett
Through a wide variety of media, artist Lucy Garnett explores her multi-national past and current identity in a large solo exhibition at Shoreline City Hall in the lobby as well as the 3rd and 4th floors. With some large-scale artworks and build-out installations tucked into corners in the city’s corridors, the artist continues the tradition of transforming the civic center into a contemporary art museum. The show also features sculpture, print, video, and painting. Notations is also made possible through a collaboration with Seattle Artist League.
About the artist
Lucy Garnett is an Anglo-Indian artist living in Seattle. She taught in Oxfordshire Primary schools 1995 - 2011, and from 2002 trained as a fine artist with De Montfort University. Her final degree piece From East to Western High Street was selected by internationally renowned gallery Modern Art Oxford for inclusion in a special graduates’ show for the South of England.
She works to understand complicated systems by breaking them down visually. Her musical pieces relay the experience of hours of practice, learning to play each piece of music. Her major themes include migration, human health, social justice, and family dynamics. Lucy has been an active participant in the Seattle Artist League since its founding in 2016.
