Mary Ellen Mark Tiny: Streetwise Revisited
January 19 – March 19, 2017

In 1983, Mary Ellen Mark (1940-2015) first photographed her poignant document of a fiercely independent group of homeless and troubled youth who made their way on the streets of Seattle as pimps, prostitutes, panhandlers, and small-time drug dealers. Streetwise received critical acclaim for its honest portrayal of life on the streets and introduced us to individuals who were not easily forgotten, including “Tiny” (Erin Charles)—a thirteen-year-old prostitute with dreams of a horse farm, diamonds and furs, and a baby of her own. Since meeting Tiny thirty years ago, Mark continued to photograph her, creating what became one of Mark’s most significant and long-term projects.

Organized by Aperture Foundation, New York

Opening reception: Thursday, January 19, 5 - 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public

Pat Badt and Scott Sherk, Edges | Transitions I, 2016, video collage (still), installation dimensions variable

Edges | Transitions
April 6 - May 21, 2017

Edges | Transitions explores the moments of transition when one thing moves into another; the place where edges dissolve. The exhibition is inspired by Pat Badt and Scott Sherk’s recent artist residency in Valletta, Malta. As an island, Malta is a continuous edge. Sharp cliffs define the edge of water and land, cultural conditions define an edge between Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. Its geographic location and long history of conflict have defined it as place of transition.

Opening reception:
Thursday, April 7, 5 - 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

46th Annual Juried Art Exhibition
