The Holter Museum of Art exhibits contemporary art and artists work in the Pacific Northwest.
The Holter presents 15-20 solo and group exhibitions annually through three main galleries and two smaller galleries. Exhibitions are typically three to four months in duration. Holter events, programs, and education activities are designed in relation to current exhibitions. The Holter organizes the majority of exhibitions that are presented, working directly with artists to help them achieve their vision for presentation and engagement.
The Body in Motion follows the story of a lost girl named Mika and the cast of animal characters she encounters on her journey home. The story uses fantastical, comical narrative to explore human and animal physiology, anatomy, and evolution. The dance film, written story, and an immersive built environment all explore a rich universe of animal life, comparing visual and balance systems, limbs, and body plans. I invite the audience into a kinetic, sensory experience as they enter a world of found object sculptures, textile structures, paintings, photographs, and dance.
Synthesizing Icons will include 19 composite photographs by Blackwood. In this case, composite photographs are works of art where the artist takes original photographs and passes them through a computer program such as Photoshop. Within the program, by blending photographs, repeating images and other techniques, the artist fuses technical photographic prowess with computerized experimentation.
