Exhibition Tour of Sacred Games with Humaira Abid

September 23, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Exhibition Tour of Sacred Games with Humaira Abid | Wed. Sept. 23, 2020 | 5:00 – 6:00 pm | Live on ZOOM


Join us for a tour of artist Humaira Abid’s most recent exhibition “Sacred Games” on view at the Greg Kucera Gallery in Seattle, WA. Working in her chosen material of wood, “Sacred Games” is a timely reflection of the current political and religious landscape and is Abid’s newest body of work. The exhibition is on view now until November 7th. Her previous solo exhibition, Searching for Home is on view at the Center until October 3, 2020.
Abid works in the disciplines of woodcarving and traditional Mughal miniature painting. Through her depictions of objects and figures, Abid articulates themes that are often provocative and challenging, amplified by her manipulation of heritage practices and the materiality of wood. Her carved and painted works, known for their virtuosity and exquisite detail, have been exhibited in museums and galleries and documented in publications around the world.
This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
