CoCA is proud to partner with the University of Montana’s School of Art in bringing the first exhibition of Montana MFA candidates to Seattle, including 14 artists at various stages in their work exploring a wide range of media, including ceramics (internationally recognized program), drawing, painting, photography, mixed media installation, sculpture, printmaking, and video. The exhibit showcases the diversity of a vibrant program with an attention to objects, materials, processes, and interdisciplinary inquiry. Featured artists have come to Missoula to study from all over the country (as well as Japan, Canada, etc.) and include Lucy Capehart, Pamela Caughey, Michael Flynn, Sarahjess Hurt, Will Hutchinson, Lisa Jarrett, Steph Johnsen, Anna Lemnitzer, Suzanne Lussier, Yaro Neils, Randi O’Brien, Cathryn Sugg, Nathan Tonning, and Rebecca Weed.

CoCA’s “Across the Divide” series was started in 2009 in an effort to bring more contemporary art from the interior west and the “dry side” of the mountains to Seattle. As part of the project, CoCA staff flew to Missoula to engage the artists’ community before joining the road trip to deliver the artwork.

Call For Artists: Heaven and Earth 2 (less than 1 week left):


Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition in Carkeek Park
<http://www.cocaseattle.org/carkeek2_call.html>
In collaboration with the Carkeek Park Advisory Council, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and the Associated Recreation Council, CoCA will present “Heaven and Earth 2,” the second exhibition of temporary, outdoor sculptural installations in Carkeek Park, from June 26 – September 26, 2010.

As in 2009, the exhibition will focus on interpretations of nature in a world of dynamic change. Sculptural works can be constructed of any material and should leave “no trace” following removal. Interactive (kinetic) artworks are particularly welcome, as are any proposals that incorporate the process of change (weathering, erosion, over-growth, etc.) throughout the three-month display period.

Deadline for submissions is May 14, 2010 <http://www.cocaseattle.org/carkeek2_call.html> .

Call For Artists: Overgrowth & Understory (4 weeks left):


Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition at Cougar Mountain
<http://www.cocaseattle.org/cougarmountain_call.html>
In collaboration with King County Parks, CoCA will present “Overgrowth & Understory” the first-ever exhibition of temporary, outdoor sculptures on Cougar Mt. Regional Wildlands Park (Anti-Aircraft Peak & Sky Country Trailheads), from July 10 – October 1, 2010. In addition to its function as a Cold War missile site in the mid 20th century, the park also features historic coal mining sites as well as many miles of trails in second growth forest surrounded by an increasingly urban environment.

The exhibition, arranged around the perimeter of open fields adjacent to trailhead parking lots, will focus on interpretations of nature, history, and the built environment in a world of change. Sculptural works should be constructed of non-flammable material and should leave “no trace” following removal. Interactive (kinetic) artworks are particularly welcome, as are any proposals that incorporate the process of change (overgrowth, Cold-War history, etc.) throughout the three-month display period.
