Featured Seattle artists, multimedia and paintings by artist Amy Pleasant and selected paintings from a national call juried by Shannon Trimble of Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco and Amanda Michele Dellinger,  Assistant Director of Lisa Harris Gallery, Seattle.  Included was a performance of a one act faux family wedding. This one night only exhibition was held at "the Castle", an historic turn of the century mansion, in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle.  


It is made by and for those who choose to participate with or without experience in the arts. We are excited to open this dialog through the arts because we believe art is universal, non-discriminating and a useful vehicle when trying to express something complex - like one’s experience in a step-family.
