A New Sincerity, collaborative art installation between Olympia Artspace Alliance (OAA), and The Evergreen State College, brings the ‘Art to Storefronts’ program to the windows of Olympia’s Goldberg Building on display from now until mid-July.
The installation, coordinated by Evergreen seniors, Alithea O’Dell and Sierra Grove, features work by O’Dell and a number of other students including, Chloe Pierson, Donna Michelle Seder, Elisa Brown, Ines Rodriguez, Emma Ritchie, Payton Reid, Sally Traxler-Lavengood, Landon Jones, and Jessie Knorr.
Each artist portrayed A New Sincerity’s theme of vulnerability, sincerity, and trauma through a variety of mediums including, paintings, sculptures, film, and pottery while also enriching Olympia’s cityscape.
The exhibit sheds new light on the work of OAA as well as the depth of art programs available at Evergreen.
“The use of empty storefront windows has created a natural connection for us to provide spaces for artists to exhibit, and truly aligns with our mission,” said Tracy Jameson, board member at Olympia Artspace Alliance. “We’ve done a variety of different things in the past, representing different artists. The collaboration with Evergreen, and having students curate a project for the first time has been a unique creative opportunity to really enhance that connection.”
