Ghost Gallery: 504 E Denny Way | Seattle WA 98122
ArtBridge: Jackson + Hoffman
On view from April 10, 2014 – May 4, 2014. Opening reception on Thursday, April 10 from 5-9pm during the BLITZ Capitol Hill Arts Walk.
Akiko Jackson and Jessica Hoffman showcase their work from the 2013-2014 ArtBridge Fellowship at Ghost Gallery in Seattle. Conceptually sophisticated and masterfully executed, the exhibition is a true celebration of emergent talent in our region.
About the 2013-14 fellowship:
Created as platform for advancing the work of emerging artists, the ArtBridge Fellowship at Pratt Fine Arts Center identifies artists with exceptional promise and gives them the tools to progress creatively and professionally. Over the course of a full year, Fellowships offer educational experiences, including creative and technical training, access to equipment, and an opportunity to engage with Pratt’s artistic community.
In 2013, thanks to generous support from Chihuly Garden and Glass, RBC Wealth Management, and Chihuly Studio, two Fellowships were awarded by jury to support the emergent voices of artists Jessica Hoffman and Akiko Jackson. Jessica and Akiko have truly exemplified the intent of the ArtBridge Fellowship; they have used their awards thoughtfully, gaining new skills and insights that have been applied to the creation of stunning new work.
