Wednesday evening was the Preview Party for the PONCHO Invitational Fine Arts Exhibition. I was really excited about getting to see the nearly 300 pieces of art that was donated this year. Works that ranged all media-- from paintings, prints, sculpture, jewelry and glass.
The PONCHO auction committee put together the PONCHO Invitational Fine Art Exhibition so that all the art could be on display for public viewing in a salon-style showing before the PONCHO auction. The PONCHO Invitational Fine Art Exhibition will be up from Aug 13-15 and Aug 20-22. Open to the public Noon - 6:00pm at Western Bridge (3412 4th Ave South/ Seattle, WA 98104).
I really liked the outside architecture of the Western Bridge as well as the space inside. Industrial and simple.

There were so many great pieces of work. I ended up taking quite a few pictures, but I narrowed the selection down to just a few for the blog.

a shelf full of all kinds of wonderful pieces:
Two Bugle Flowers
Stillness at Dawn
Sculptured Chair & Sculptured Ottoman
Some of my friends/classmates also had donated a piece so it was really nice to meet up with them there and spend some time together. I love how we all are looking somewhere else and have interesting facial expressions.
