Going Dutch II
A group art show of tulipieres (tulip vases) and Dutch Golden Age inspired still lifes.
A brief explanation: upon returning from a holiday in the Netherlands I became obsessed with the tulipiere, a strange and fantastical vase designed specifically for tulips. To my delight I learned that local ceramic artist Carol Gouthro had curated a tulipiere show just a few years earlier at the Museum of Northwest Art (MoNA) in La Conner. When the chance to put together a Dutch themed show came about I reached back out to Carol and asked her if she'd like to make her first tulipiere and show it alongside art inspired by the Dutch Golden Age. A few more invites went out and thus Going Dutch was born in Spring 2019. Every year since I hope to celebrate spring with a fresh batch of tulipieres and the Dutch inspired art of local artists.
