Featured Exhibit

Featured Exhibit

 The Burien Arts Gallery’s November exhibit spotlights two artists whose work is drawn from two vastly different origins.

Kalvin Zane Rutagengwa is a self-taught painter and sculptor who discovered his artistic talent as a 6-year-old boy in Rwanda. Tamara Stephas is a landscape painter and sculptor whose work is deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest.

You can meet both artists at the exhibit’s Opening Reception on Friday, Nov. 7, 4-8 p.m. The show runs Nov. 4-Nov. 30.

Artists United’s November display at the Gallery features acrylic painters Judy Eckhardt and Janet Price. Eckhardt uses many layers of paint to achieve rich colors and vibrant paintings. Her exhibit focuses on boats and beach houses. Price is a painter and print maker. In honor of the Day of the Dead, she will feature some of her work from Mexico.

Fine-art ceramics and jewelry will also be on display.

As a member of the Tutsi tribe that was nearly eradicated in the Rwanda genocide, Rutagengwa let peace and reconciliation be his motivation during this time. He used his artistic talents to help orphans build their lives on art rather than as street beggars.

Stephas’ work explores the relationship between humans and our environment by combining landscape painting with architectural elements and text.

The Gallery is located at 826 S.. 152nd St. in Olde Burien. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Saturday, noon-6 p.m. and Sunday, noon-4 p.m. We are closed Monday and Tuesday.
