Seattle Based Artist/Instructor
Anthony White is an artist and curator in Seattle, Washington, where he is currently represented by Greg Kucera Gallery. A 2018 alumnus of Cornish College of the Arts, White's work is meticulously spun from common PLA plastic resulting in representations of manipulated and glamorized portraits, consumerism, and brash, Instagram-style images as viewed through the lens of a cell phone. In 2020 he was a finalist for the Neddy Award and a recipient of the AXA Art Prize at NYC Academy of Art. In 2019, White presented a solo booth at EXPO Chicago, received the Special Recognition award from Seattle Art Museum's Betty Bowen Committee.
Gage Academy of Art acknowledges the Coast Salish Peoples as the original inhabitants of this area and connecting waterways. We understand the land that Gage occupies is unceded territory and that today many Indigenous peoples live here and without their stewardship, we would not have access to this space. We honor the Coast Salish Peoples’ sovereignty, rights to self-determination, culture and ways of life. Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have called this territory their sacred land. We commit to learning, educating others and repairing the legacy of historically harmful relationships between non-Native and Native peoples in King County. In doing so, we will be honest, and recognize the experiences of Native peoples to include genocide, forced relocation, forced assimilation, and land theft. We also acknowledge Native peoples are survivors, present in today’s world, thriving. We encourage everyone here today to ask themselves: what can I do to support Indigenous communities?
In an effort to be transparent, Gage is contemplating this call to action and re-working how to best support Indigenous communities.
