25th Anniversary Exhibition

William Traver Gallery, Seattle, WA
Feb 17-Mar 31, 2002

Eric Nelsen, Caravans of Connoisseurs #2: Objects of My Affection (2001), Anagama wood-fired ceramic [William Traver Gallery, Seattle, Feb 17-Mar 31, 2002]
Since William Traver Gallery opened 25 years ago, Seattle has grown and is now thriving in the arts. The Traver Gallery opened its doors in 1977 in the Belltown district near the Space Needle. It has since developed an international reputation and in 1992 moved to the current 10,000 square-foot location on the second floor of the Harold Poll Building, designed by architect George Suyama.

The gallery has developed a stylistic niche that reflects the Studio Glass Movement, featuring work such as the Green Murrini Vessels by Benjamins Edols and Kathy Elliott. Sculpture in ceramic, wood, metal, and mixed media, installation and contemporary paintings are also exhibited.

Traver has remained committed to showing innovative works and has not overlooked his original intent for the gallery, to “show work by emerging artists.” The gallery’s anniversary year begins with “New Artists, New Work” (through Feb 10) and features work by seventeen artists new to the gallery. This will be followed by the 25th Anniversary Exhibition (Feb 17-Mar 31) of represented artists, many of whom had their first solo exhibits at the Traver Gallery. Some of the participating artists include Sonja Blomdahl, Jaq Chartier, Ann Garder, Gregory Grenon, Doug Jeck, Dante Marioni, Hans Nelsen, Lino Tagliapietra, and Anna Skibska. Opening reception is Feb 16th from 5- 8pm.
