Traver Gallery is very pleased to present Above the Cloud, a new exhibition of works by master metalsmith and University of Washington Professor Emeritus, John Marshall. One of only a few artists continuing to work in the silversmith tradition of revived in the United States after World War II, Marshall is known for pairing his extraordinary technical expertise with a passion for experimenting with form and material.
We are also pleased to present Woman of Unknown Etiology, a new exhibition by metal artist Lynn Whitford. The show draws on the artist's ongoing interest in the beauty of ordinary objects and the way in which objects can seem to take on a life of their own, connecting us to our own history and to the shared history of our community. Like portraiture, Whitford's sculptures are intended to convey a sense of the character of the object; to examine the object's relationship to the world it inhabits and to express its unique story.
