OPENING: Traver Gallery explores the absence of color in new exhibition “Shades of White”

The Traver Gallery, located in Seattle, will be playing host to a new exhibition titled, “Shades of White,” with an opening reception to take place this evening, Thursday, March 6th from 5 PM - 8 PM. The exhibit features sculptures composed of several types of media, ranging from paper and wood to glass and ceramics.

It is a study on the absence of color and what the artists can explore from experiencing that absence in their work and range from narrative to formal. “Shades of White” features the work of 23 artists, many of whom have created pieces from glass. Such artists include but are not limited to: John Kiley, Flora C. Mace and Joey Kirkpatrick, Ann Wolff, Ethan Stern, April Surgent, and Dante Marioni. According to a prepared statement, “Shades of White highlights the many diverse expressions of the aesthetic choice to either eschew added pigment entirely, or work primarily in white; the result is a richly varied presentation of work that is subtle, beautiful, and quietly sensuous.”
