Kouros

Kouros, 30x30 in., Rust Monotype on panel with gold leaf

































Roby King Galleries In Winslow on Bainbridge Island, Washington, hosts a Printmaking Exhibition this month.  The opening reception is October 3 at 6 PM.  My rust Monotype Kouros (youth), above, and companion print Kore (maiden) will be exhibited.

Kouros and Kore were inspired by sculpture of archaic Greece (800 BC – 480 BC).  The Kouroi and Korai sculptures of Greece did not represent an individual but the idea and ideal of youth, a combination of moral and physical beauty and nobility.

Opening night, Vashon's First Friday, October 3rd, from 6 to 9PM, will include a live harp performance by Jane Valenci.  Intuitive Arts Gallery also welcomes  images and offerings that celebrate memory and connection from the community.


"Fetch" honors the  memory of my dog "Tashi" and his obsession/mission in life to retrieve!
