A fresh perspective on contemporary portraiture

June 16 - Oct 18, 2009

Comprised of over 30 works by locally, nationally and internationally celebrated artists, UberPortrait examines the 'portrait' in all its facets – from individual likeness to

overarching cultural identity. Working in a broad range of media such as sculpture, ceramics, photography, fiber, performance art and film, artists highlighted in UberPortrait share a common interest: exploring the age-old fascination with capturing a person's likeness and/or recreating his or her identity, both as individual and a collective entity.

Tickets: $9 Adult; $7 Seniors and Students; Children under age 6 are free
Location: Bellevue Arts Museum, 510 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue

Pinned to PONCHO
Silent Auction: Jun 26 (closed)
Lucky Strike Lanes, Lincoln Square

PONCHO and Lucky Strike Lanes teamed up and commissioned nearly 50 fine artists from the Puget Sound to cast their creativity upon unfinished, regulation-sized bowling pins to create bowling pins d’art. These pins were auctioned off at this lively event to benefit PONCHO’s art organizations, education and outreach programs across the state. The benefit event raised over $5000 for the arts. Visit Pinned to PONCHO for more details and Team Photogenic for photos from the auction event.

MetroBellevue is the winning bidder of the bowling pin titled "Fetish Facere" by artist Esther Ervin. Details about the artist and pin.

Artist: Esther Ervin
Artist Comments: Since the peculiar contours of a bowling pin seem reminiscent of ancient fetish figures, I decided to create a modern fetish, constructed from art-paper, twine, beads, hammered copper, wool and other materials.
About this Artist: Esther Ervin began creating sculpture from gourds and wood when work-for-hire was not engaging enough. These works enabled her to earn an Artist in Residency and the Pathways Scholarship at Pratt Fine Arts Center, where she has learned to work with various metals. Her aesthetic is grounded in the use of multiple media, and the employment of artisans' processes to produce Fine Art.

Faces for Life, now thru Mar 14 | Metro Belleve WA Faces for Life
Online Auction: closed
Public exhibit: thru Mar 14, Bellevue Square
Faces for Life Gala Auction: Mar 15, Grand Hyatt Seattle

The Bellevue Square Merchants Association and Puget Sound Blood Center present Faces for Life™, a month-long annual fundraiser celebrating the dedication of volunteers, financial contributors and families of tissue donors. All funds raised from Faces for Life will go directly to support the Puget Sound Blood Center and their lifesaving programs.

Faces for Life Benefit Auction MetroBellevue is the winning bidder of the ceramic mask "Bird Woman" at the recent Faces for Life online auction benefiting Puget Sound Blood Center. We placed bids on several ceramic masks and was lucky to come away a winner of this beautiful mask by artist Randy Yamanaka, a blood donor and police officer.

Details about the artist and mask.
Artist: Randy Yamanaka
Artist Comments: I support the Puget Sound Blood Center because they are life-givers, everyday heroes, and I've seen it first-hand as a marrow donor.
About this Mask: The "Bird-Woman" was a vision through the eyes of my daughter and her love for birds. It was also inspired by her stuffed toys, which came to life on this palette. To be honest, I'm a career police officer and most of my training is in crime scene sketches. But this project offered me a unique opportunity to create something far more fun!
