It Takes Two

It’s Strange Coupling time again. And in honor of this annual, Spring artstravaganza, I give you Kim Weston and Marvin Gaye, who will sing while you check out this year’s (exciting) Strange Couples and the details:

Strange Coupling, along with Ouch My Eye Gallery, is excited to present an exhibition of new collaborative work by prominent local artists and current art students at the University of Washington. Coupling VIII: Matches Made will feature the following artist pairs working across all disciplines:

Gala Bent :: Nuala Ni Fhlathuin

Britta Johnson :: Christopher McElroy
Shawn Patrick Landis :: Sohroosh Hashemi
Kate Lebo :: Bryan Schoneman

The opening will be April 1, 2010 from 7:00 – 11:00 pm. All the work will be for sale by silent auction; bidding will begin when the doors open and will end promptly at 9:00 pm. The exhibition will run April 1 – May 6, 2010.

This year’s artists were paired by Marisa Sánchez, Assistant Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art for the Seattle Art Museum and Michael Van Horn, Curator of The Joseph and Elaine Monsen Photography Collection.
