Crosscut article '35 art shows and festivals to see in Seattle' features Gary Faigin



"Another longtime local artist taking us for a drive is Gary Faigin. Co-founder of Gage Academy and author of definitive tome The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expressions, Faigin is showing a collection of new work in The Age of Steam, at Harris/Harvey Gallery (through Oct. 2). In these vivid paintings, beautiful old trains barrel through small towns and natural landscapes. With exhaust trails tinted blood red and bruised purple, they suggest the environmental havoc wrought since the Industrial Revolution."

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
