University House Issaquah Collaborates with ArtEAST and Sammamish Symphony
(ISSAQUAH, WA) – Friends & Neighbors, a new exhibit composed exclusively of works created by artists from Issaquah and Sammamish, including several residents of University House Issaquah, opens Tuesday, March 11th with a reception from 4pm – 6pm at University House Issaquah, located at 22975 S.E. Black Nugget Road in Issaquah. A special ensemble from the Sammamish Symphony Orchestra will play during the reception, while guests enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres prepared with local ingredients, making it a truly, all-local event for the senses.
Exhibit focal pieces include works in ceramic and fused glass from artEAST Executive Director and recipient of the City of Issaquah Business Leader Award, Karen Able, a 40” x 35” acrylic on canvas painting of Ruby Beach at the Olympic National Park by Sammamish Artist, Carol Ross and a large, carved wood statue by colorful Sammamish Art Fair Participant, Al Zold.
“Issaquah and its surrounding community has become a destination for art, not just for the eastside, but for the entire Seattle-area,” said Able. “To share our art in a forum like University House Issaquah, where life-long learning is encouraged and the residents are excited by what they see, is a benefit to all.”
