Beauty & Bounty at SAM

Imagine arriving in the Pacific Northwest in the mid 1880's, pristine views, clean air -- the sky......Well, you can get a more vivid idea of what our corner of the world looked like upon visiting the Seattle Art Museum’s "Beauty & Bounty American Art an Age of Exploration" exhibit (June 30th - September 11th). The breathtaking images, many rarely seen in public, of early landscapes paintings and photographs depict likely visitor views upon arrival to our shores.  What a name, and what a rare opportunity... go and see this show!

 

Artists including, Albert Bierstadt, Sanford Gifford, and Thomas Moran.  Additionally, photographs including a mammoth image by Carleton Watkins, Edward Muybridge, and Timothy O'Sullivan, can also be seen.

The Iconic Hunt Club nestled in Seattle's Favorite, The Sorrento Hotel. DUELL FISHER FOR TEAM PHOTOGENIC © 2011Executive Director Derek Cartwright and Board Chair Charlie Wright welcomed guests to the preview opening June 28th, and President Maggie Walker presided over a private dinner inside the Hunt Club at the Sorrento Hotel exclusively for donors, local American Art collectors, and exhibit sponsors.

 

 

 

Sunflowers in great supply adorned the room, providing a sunny back-drop (under our gray skies) for Chef Ivan Szilak's bounty of food - including a fresh peach and arugula salad, delicate halibut, with a fresh finish of lemon tarts and individual cherry pies from neighbor on the hill, High 5 Pies.

Cheers,
