An Evening of Art & Conversation about Northwest Art and Artists

The Junior League of Seattle and Henry Art Gallery are partnering to offer an exciting training session focusing on the rich history of Northwest Art and artists.  Artworks by Northwest artists such as Mark Tobey, Morris Graves and others from the Henry’s Collection will be on view in the Reed Collections Study Center for this special evening. This event coincides with the exhibition of paintings on view in the North Galleries, many of which are similar pieces in Junior League of Seattle’s collection.

This training event will be led by renowned local art expert John Braseth and our own Tricia Tiano.  Both have extensive experience and knowledge of Pacific NW Artists.

The Junior League of Seattle Northwest Art Project develops critical thinking through art.  For 51 years, the program has been bringing original works of art by Northwest artists to local classrooms—reaching over 11,000 children and 400 educators last year alone.  During its early years, the program was hosted and administered in conjunction with the Henry Art Gallery.  This training will focus on reflection of art through inquiry-based critical thinking methods.
