Past Exhibit

Allure of the Fish

January 10 – February 1

Featuring Joseph Rossano

Opening reception January 17, 5-8pm

Soft opening and documentary screening with Mark Titus January 10 starting at 5pm.

Exhibit features artist Joseph Rossano, whose artwork is greatly influenced by his passion for protecting our natural resources. Rossano is a tireless advocate for improving salmon and steelhead habitats in the Pacific NW. Also, included in the exhibit are several glass fish from his collaborative installation School: The Joseph Rossano Salmon Project, on view at Bellevue Arts Museum April 12 - August 11, 2019.

School is a multimedia installation crowdsourced from a community of makers. The project hopes to show through group effort, how a population of the concerned can recover lost ecosystems. The project's goal is to produce in excess of 2504 mirrored glass steelhead. This number represents the lowest return of steelhead to the Skagit River in recorded history. In essence "School" is a performance piece, artists working together to produce a representation of the unseen.

The artists collaborating with Rossano to make "School" possible are participating in the complimentary exhibit Salmon School Ambassadors in the Schack Art Center main gallery through February 23, 2019.
