ArtSEA: Saving the historic Weyerhaeuser campus from development

Feb 25, 2021

...This past weekend I explored more local terrain, on a mission to the Kitsap Peninsula. I touched down at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, where Seattle artist Kimberly Trowbridge has a dreamy new solo show, Into the Garden (through May 9). These lush green oil paintings are the result of her residency at the historic Bloedel Reserve, also on Bainbridge (a visit to both makes a perfect pairing). Trowbridge, an expert in color theory, depicts the Edenic grounds of the preserve with a studied eye toward the endless depths of Northwest green: plush moss gardens, a grove of Douglas firs pierced with light, the bright surprise of camellia blossoms, the eerie emerald reflecting pool.

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
