Seattle-based artist Julie Alpert modifies and arranges craft materials and found-objects in temporary room-size compositions with recurring motifs including roses, chains, bows, drips, nonsensical text, hearts, hashtags and flying carpets that become frozen records of a performance. The artist will give a lecture about her work at 5:30 pm and an opening reception will follow from 6 to 7 pm. The exhibition runs through April 29, 2018, and is free and open to the public.
