The exhibit runs from Aug 9 through Sep 14, 2019

Shop Companion in Our Online Catalog

Please join us for an opening on Friday evening, Aug 9th from 5 to 8pm. Our openings are fun opportunities to meet the artists and hear about their inspirations, motivations and methods. We’ll serve beer, wine, cold beverages and lots of delicious appetizers and desserts.

COMPANION features the work of four contemporary artists working in a range of mediums, the exhibit encourages viewers to consider their relationships with each other and the animals with whom we share our lives. Each artist has interpreted ‘companion’ in her own way, and we think the resulting exhibit is powerful, thought-provoking and fascinating.

** Seattle printmaker Dawn Endean, states that she is drawn to dogs’ vulnerability – to how “dependent they are on the luck of the draw. They accept their lot; often with joy, loyalty and sweetness… and give back a hundred fold.” Her emotional images are made with intricate layering of intaglio plates, monoprinting and collage.

** Dara Daniel of northern California, looks back through history at our human capacity to connect with animals, particularly horses, who have been companions, escorts, guides and even counterparts to their human friends. She paints horses because their souls are beautiful to look at while expressing excitement, joy and spirit.

** With her distinctive voice, Susan Mattson has expressed for years, the close connection between human and non-human beings. Her sculptural clay vessels often depict animals with bodies covered by a mass human faces. Are we separate or are we life-companions? How do our actions affect every other being on this planet? Can we learn from our companions? Who is in charge?

** We are sharing our journey of life on Earth with uncountable species. Betsey Hurd believes, as do many indigenous peoples of Earth, that we are all one. No separation of species. Where does one of us end and another begin? What exactly is our connection? Hurd’s polymorphic fabulism pieces are about the integration of species. And … as a horse-woman and experienced artist, Betsey’s horse-beings are often the subject of her ceramic sculptures, along with other beings like deer, dogs, cats, bison and birds.

COMPANION runs through September 14th. Stop by 1+1=1 Gallery anytime we’re open and see the show in person!
