Masters of Disguise III: A Group Mask Exhibition

This June we continue to explore the tradition and innovation of mask-making on the Northwest Coast. Contemporary sculptors, painters and jewelers will bring their perspectives to bear on the act of hiding, disguising, transforming and storytelling, resulting in a collection of masks that tell us about our history, our present, and our future. As with the first two iterations of this group exhibit, expect works that range from traditional to groundbreaking, and that encompass media as disparate as glass, wood, stone, hide, fiber, metal and ceramic.
