Life As Art
EXHIBITION:Duane Pasco: Life As Art
Life As Art is a full-color, hard-cover book that celebrates seven decades of artwork and stories. Few people encapsulate all that is remarkable about the Northwest Coast, but Pasco’s life embodies this region perhaps more than any other Stonington Gallery artist. Pasco’s gift for the great anecdote will make this an evening of rare insight, education and entertainment.
Pasco, who is not Native, is perhaps best known in Seattle as the sculptor behind the four totemic sculptures standing in Occidental Mall in Pioneer Square: a house post, totem pole, Bear figure and woman figure. He is one of the foremost carvers working today, and continues to create exquisitely detailed masks, totem poles, canoes and rattles.
