SAM Gallery Presents: Pile it On by Cara Jaye

Jul 4 – 31 2019

Seattle Art Museum

SAM Gallery

10 AM – 5 PM

Inspired by her daughter, Cara Jaye's works on paper made with ink, paint, pen, serigraphy, and digital elements result in images both sweet and scary. Artist and professor Jaye says, "Being a parent has opened me up to an entire new world of visuals; from the toys we choose and offer to our children, to the kinds of images they draw and select for themselves. The work also alludes to my own feelings of inundation, a general sense of being overwhelmed, and the tricky power play between parent and child."
