High-Tech Art in an Old-Fashioned Setting
Interactive Fabric and Innovative Instruments are Exhibited at McLeod Residence

The wallpaper may be old-fashioned, but the art certainly isn’t—two artists creating high-tech interactive art are showing at McLeod Residence through April 30. Seattle artists Maggie Orth and Paul Rucker create very different work, but they both combine traditional techniques and practices with new media to create art that is participatory and humorous, providing a sense of warmth and humanity to the often-cold world of technology and computer programming. Maggie Orth is showing interactive electronic textiles, and Paul Rucker has created a multimedia installation of a "new interactive instrument." Also at McLeod Residence through April 30 is Seattle Notables, a multimedia project celebrating famous figures of Seattle, featuring photographs by Adam L. Weintraub and Alice Wheeler, as well as a painting exhibit curated by Laurie Kearney; neon by Jeremy Bert and Jen Elek; and an exhibit of Northwest paintings which includes an early work by Chuck Close.

Please join us on Friday, April 6, from 5-9pm to view the exhibition. Wine and snacks will be available.
