MOTHERLAND: 2019 COCA MEMBERS' SHOWCenter on Contemporary Art
114 Third Ave S
Seattle, WA 98104
Welcome to our annual members’ show with over 160 artists from across the world, celebrating a depth of creativity that we’ve been proud to amplify for four decades. This year’s show explores a wide range of creatives and celebrates artists of all ages and media including 2D, 3D, video and multimedia.
All participating artists will be a part of the exhibit's digital slideshow and represented in the annual printed catalog. From emerging to established, the list of contemporary artists to show in CoCA's Pioneer Square gallery is comprehensive with over 120 works on display. This show is part of CoCA’s 2019 programming that amplifies female voices and themes.
CoCA supports artists not only through their exhibitions, but also through meaningful local partnerships. The show was juried by artist and writer Amanda Manitach. In addition to working extensively in the field of drawing and multi-disciplinary visual art, she has also served as Visual Arts Editor at City Arts Magazine, spent three years as curator at Hedreen Gallery at Seattle University and co-founded multiple alternative art spaces and events across Seattle in the past decade. This partnership provides an extra special opportunity for CoCA artist members to receive recognition by the juror in this year's catalog, as well as CoCA's blog and newsletter. Also this year will be two winners of the Artist & Craftsman Supply People’s Choice Award and receive a $100 gift card to Artist & Craftsman Supply, an art supply store located in the U-Distract in Seattle. We are thrilled to provide a direct link to such a valuable resources for artists in the region.
