Dear TeacherArtExchange Members,

Diane Kurzyna (list member) - informed me about a new exhibit.

Here is the link about Diane Kurzyna's latest art activity (She
curated this art show about coffee):

From Diane:

JAVA DIVAS
Art about Coffee

by two dozen artists from the Puget Sound area
at South Puget Sound Community College Gallery

April 3 - May 5

opening reception Friday, April 7, 7pm - 9pm
gallery talk on Thursday, April 20, noon
closing party on Friday, May 5, 4pm - 6pm

This ain't yesterday's coffee art! This art has been specially
blended and freshly brewed for your enjoyment.

In conjunction with SPSCC's Coffee Conference, the Gallery is proud to
serve Java Divas, an exhibit featuring a wide array of interpretations
to the theme of coffee. From Ross Palmer Beecher's recycled media to
Greg Lukens allegorical oil paintings, from Sequoia Miller's
functional ceramics to Nikki McClure's papercut logos, see how over
two dozen artists from the Puget Sound area, including Tacoma's own
Lynn Di Nino, have created art about coffee with coffee beans, coffee
cups, coffee filters, coffee grinds, coffee pots, coffee sacks, even
coffee as the medium itself, through painting, sculpture, collage,
encaustics, prints, photographs, felt, and more. The NW premier of
"Coffee Duet" performance art video by Lydia Grey with Hilliard
Greene from NYC will also be shown.
