Art Opening: Betsy Bloomfield and Dan Brewer's Evolving at Collaboration Coffee

3/6/2020

Location: Yakima

18 S. 1st Street, Yakima, WA 98901

Please join us for the opening of Betsy Bloomfield & Dan Brewer's "Evolving: Beginning / Becoming" on first Friday March 6th from 6 - 8 pm. A brief artist talk will begin at 7 pm. Here's a bit about the show:

                “In the Beginning” is a profoundly evocative statement that humans have been pondering for untold millennia.  It taps on the window of our imaginations, inviting our minds and our spirits to tell our stories, paint our cave walls, and point our telescopes in search of that perfect incandescent moment.  At the dawn of this age, when our creation of artificial intelligences has in turn created new lifeforms in their own image, there is a new question for humanity: “What are we Becoming?”  In this show, we are painting our own story of Beginning, Becoming, and the vast canvas of our ever-evolving home world on these cave walls.  Was there a Big Bang or a mischievous Raven?  Will there be a post-human being heading into the cosmos, or will the Raven call out to the final human to make the journey?

              Each of us has an opportunity to see and feel as our ancestors did through observing what our inherited imagination does with what we see.  Our art pieces in this story bring both the ancient and the modern together in the media we use.  The fractal images contain infinitely repeating patterns that we are evolved to see as familiar things.  The familiar images in the paintings pair with the patterns in the fractals to heighten the experience of letting our imagination interpret what we see. 

Where did it all begin, and where is it going?  Let’s explore together."
