In June of 2013 artists and educators from the United States and six different African countries—Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, and Zimbabwe—gathered in South Africa for two weeks of living, learning, and creating together. As participants in project “R5: A Visual Arts Studio and Seminar in South Africa” they undertook an intensive program of engagement with South Africa—its history, culture, and contemporary reality—and with each other. R5 refers to five themes South African artists deal with in significant measure: Remembrance, Resistance, Reconciliation, Representation, and Re-visioning. This exhibit is the culmination of that experience. The gallery is open from 10am-6pm, Monday-Friday, and 10am-2pm on Saturday. The exhibition runs from September 13th to October 28, 2016.

Please join us for an exhibition of artist-in-residence Leslie Barlow's work. Leslie’s work uses the figure and narrative elements to talk about issues related to multiculturalism, “otherness”, and identity. “Working within the history of portrait painting allows me fertile ground to push the boundaries of our known visual language and inject that history with a new generation of faces and stories. With the scarcity of positive or simply “regular” imagery of people of color historically in art, especially representations of people of mixed race backgrounds, I seek to give a voice to the underrepresented multiethnic community.”

Come and hear whether we should fear or embrace this new technology. Three experts in their field will be with us: Dr. Nigel Cameron, President of the Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies; Dr. Meaghan O’Keefe, a bioethicist from the University of California Davis, and Dr. Andrew Scharenberg from the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital who studies how to use genome editing technology in medicine.

The Gospel Conference
  • Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016 @ 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 28, 2016 @ All Day
  • Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016 @ All Day

Please join us for the first annual Gospel Conference, October 27-29. This year's conference will address the topic of Racism and the Gospel. Multiple incidents across our nation and in the Pacific Northwest have given rise to increased racial tensions in our communities and in places of worship. These tensions create both challenges and opportunities for people of Christian faith to think about racism through the lens of Jesus' Gospel. This conference will seek to address the issue of racism biblically, theologically, and relationally. The goal of this conference is to encourage boldness and courage as God’s people live out the mandate of Jesus' good news for all people. Please visit our website for more information.
