"Northwest Views: Selections from the SAFECO Collection"
2001-09-07 until 2001-11-04
Frye Art Museum
Seattle, WA, USA

Northwest Views: Selections from the SAFECO Collection explores the breadth of work by Northwest representational artists in the SAFECO art collection who have lived within a generation of each other, including veteran stars such as Morris Graves, William Cumming, and Fay Chong, and emerging contemporary artists, such as Michael Brophy, Gloria DeArcangelis, and Juan Alanso.  Northwest Views will be on display at the Frye, Sept. 7 - Nov. 4, 2001.

The artworks selected for Northwest Views range in date from mid-1930s to the present with a wide range of genres: landscapes, cityscapes, portraiture, comic art, still lifes, wildlife, and scenes of everyday life. While all the artworks can be broadly defined as representational, the styles extend from the naturalistic modes of Victoria Adams and Jacob Elshin to near-abstractions by Theodore Waddell and Richard Gilkey.

       For almost thirty years, SAFECO Corporation has supported the visual arts by acquiring works by artists who live in the Northwest. The collection includes an important body of Northwest art in a variety of media including paintings, prints, ceramics, and sculpture. The collaboration between SAFECO and the Frye Art Museum provides a unique opportunity for the public to view a selection of this outstanding collection in a museum environment.

A catalogue will be available with an essay by Ron Glowen.
