ArtVenture: Shape of Family with Devon Midori Hale

What do you picture when you think of “family”? Is there a shape to that “feeling of family” and, if so, what are its colors and textures? Join us for an afternoon of making unique family portraits in the spirit of the art of In Plain Sight! Inspired by a selection of archival images of daily life in Seattle, as well as other fascinating sources that help us think about the “place” of family, we’ll experiment with sumi ink and other art supplies to explore and imagine what families look like and what they mean to us.

Devon Midori Hale is a visual artist from Seattle, Washington.  Her work explores civic, genealogical, and personal identity, and how our past and future are narratives that continuously play and replay in the present. She loves to combine symbols of immortality and sacred pasts with quotidian places and day-to-day clutter. When she is not alone painting in her studio, Hale works on community-engaged public projects and as a teaching artist. Community projects often use imagery from the subconscious, arranging fragments of objects, places, and memories into a semi-cohesive narrative.
