Smash Putt! is going away forever in just a few weeks and we can’t stand leaving you all alone, so we want to use our last breath to tell you about some of the artists and institutions that we dearly love, that they might bring you comfort in the years to come!
CoCA, Center on Contemporary Art, is a long lived artist hub started by artists for artists back in 1980. CoCA provides forums for artists and challenges us all to do amazing work. In the last two decades we’ve seen CoCA events and exhibits at several locations throughout Seattle, always these locations have presented provocative art that often pushed beyond of the mold required at other galleries. It’s wonderful to have an institution in Seattle that gives as much to artists that create hard-to-define and experimental work in mediums such as performance, sculpture, and machine/electronic art as much as they do with more traditional art forms.
CoCA currently has a gallery in Pioneer Square’s TK building and has supported artists at all stages of their creativity with an artist in residence program, CoCA Lab, since 2014.
From March 2-4 and April 6-29, CoCA will feature its members in this year’s annual Members’ Show, Make America Create Again, at their Pioneer Square gallery. March dates will highlight experimental and time based artists using sound, performance and video then the April show will feature the artist members that have work hanging on walls and sitting on pedestals.
More info and an announcement of the selected members participating in the show will be on their website soon! CLICK HERE for details!
We cannot say enough about how the work presented by CoCA has influenced us as artists.
