SHORELINE -The College Gallery at Shoreline Community College presents "Hovering Love," an interactive mixed media installation by artist Betty Bastai that deals with language, archaeology and love iconography. The unique exhibit is comprised of love letters written and folded into origami doves by Shoreline Community College students, faculty and staff at the request of the artist which hang from the ceiling of the gallery. The exhibition runs January 31 to February 25, 2008.
The College will hold an artist reception on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the College Gallery.
“By omitting high-technology devices and relying on simple tools of communication like a hand written love letter, I encourage the viewer to break self-built boundaries, get involved in physical actions and share information with strangers. In this way I hope to establish an intimate interaction between the viewers and the artwork that would reverberate in their day-to-day world,” says Bastai.
The College Gallery is located on the main campus in the 1000 Building at 16101 Greenwood Ave. N, Shoreline. It is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday. Call 206.546.4101, x4433.
