South Seattle College Art Gallery is hosting a special show this Spring quarter that will celebrate works by members of the local LBTQIA+ community. This show is entitled “Butterflies: A Fantastically Queer Journey” and this quarter you can catch it on the West Seattle Art Walk on April 14th! Here’s a little more about the show and the special events that will accompany it:
“The South Seattle College Art Gallery, as a member of student life, is proud to encourage diversity on our campus and within the West Seattle community. This spring quarter we will be collaborating with local artists and our very own Queer Straight Alliance to bring a little bit of vibrancy to our gray city. We are pleased to host these thought provoking works from members of our local LBTQIA+ community.”
The show will run from Monday, April 4th- Saturday, April 30th, with the reception on Tuesday, April 5th (12-2pm).
Bianca Wright is a military veteran of 14 years across the US Air Force, US Army, and Washington Army National Guard. She left service in 2014 to pursue her passion in photography, finishing a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from The Art Institute of Seattle in 2015. Through her formal training she specialized in portraiture, fine art, and still-life photography. Her style is dark and dramatic, as much about the shadows as it is about the light. Bianca works with both film and digital processes and creates dramatic imagery.
