AND if your day could use even more art on Friday December 9th after the art fair, please come to the Evergreen Gallery between 5-7 for a show Cultural Connections that will feature the works of Marwin Begaye, Peter Boome, and prints by participants in their workshops as well as that of visiting Hawaiian artist, Herman Pi’ikea Clark who will offer a short artist talk and interactive art demonstration. The workshops and exhibition are supported with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, Native Arts and Culture Foundation and the Ford Foundation. We couldn’t have done this without the support of Erin Oly and Judith Baumann, The Evergreen State College print shop and Ann Friedman, director of the Evergreen Gallery.
