CoCA Celebrates “PostGlamism: Glam Art in the 21st Century”


We’re VERY excited about this new art exhibition at the Center for Contemporary Art, (aka, “CoCA”) second floor of the Seattle Design Center, 5701 6th Ave S, Suite 258 in Georgetown, which opens Thursday, May 15 with an opening reception from 5pm to 9pm.  “PostGlamism: Glam Art in the 21st Century” will examine the “concept of Post Glamism” pop culture through a variety of mediums.

It sounds FAB!

We’re also nuts about that “grillwork” in their promo image!

And, they encourage you to dress up for the opening night party…dust off your finest Ziggy Stardust look and head down to Georgetown!

Apologies for the lazy cut n paste from their Press Release; we’re swamped trying to prepare for the launch of this year’s special Pride page!


From May 15 – August 1, 2014, CoCA will present the 24th Annual juried exhibition celebrating this year’s theme, PostGlamism: Glam Art in the 21st Century.

Each year, CoCA curators invite an independent juror to select the work from among the entries received, and is proud to have Michael Sweney as the 2014 juror. Sweney currently serves as Manager for the Art in Public Places Program with the Washington State Arts Commission. A member of the Tacoma Arts Commission and Tacoma Art Museum’s Collection Committee, Sweney’s work is informed by almost 20 years experience as an art dealer and curator in New York City (Charles Cowles Gallery) and Seattle (Davidson Contemporary).

The exhibition features the work of 14 artists who embrace and glorify the concept of PostGlamism pop culture and history through a mastery of mediums in both small and large scale including: neon, glass, painting, photography, interactive video installation, found objects and performance.

2014 Annual artists are: Karen Clark (CA), Dixie Darling (WA), Christian French (WA), Jeff Gerber (WA), Troy Gua (WA), Vin Hill (WA), Virginia Jenkins (WA), Lauren Kalman (MI), Rebecca Maxim (WA), Lindsay McCoy (WA), Dylan Neuwirth (WA), Hadley Northrop (CA), Matthew D. Rowe (WA), and Glenn Tramantano (WA).
