oes the daily drumbeat of bad news have you feeling a bit down? The G. Gibson Gallery in Pioneer Square may have a show for you. Their current exhibition presents works by gallery artists on the theme of flight, and the result, according to KUOW critic Gary Faigin, is a welcome bit of spring tonic.
Themed group shows are the stock in trade of museums and alternative spaces like Soil and Western Bridge, but they are less common in commercial galleries, busy as they are with client relations and other demands of the marketplace. It’s a shame, because everyone benefits – artists, gallery, and public alike – when such a show is as intelligently selected as the current exhibition “Flight” at G. Gibson in Pioneer Square, highlighting the work of three photographers and three painters with very loose thematic affinities.
