SAM Gallery Presents: Enid Smith Becker Virtual Opening

May 5 2021

Seattle Art Museum


6 PM – 7 PM

Take a virtual journey with us through these celebrations of our natural surroundings by local artist Enid Smith Becker. Exquisite beauty emerges where nature meets contemporary vision. This new work will be on view at SAM Gallery May 6 to May 31. Join us as we visit with the artist live from her studio and hear about her inspiration and process. To kick things off, we'll enjoy a custom creative beverage mix-a-long inspired by Becker's art, mixed by Bridgett Fox of Oak!

About the artist

“I believe we are all a product of landscape. Inspired by reality and imagination, I am interested in creating a visual discourse around the idea of land stewardship. Despite the different perspective that each individual brings to an experience with the environment, there remains a pressing imperative to find a common vocabulary. To me, this dialogue hinges on a departure from the idea of nature as a commodity or resource and a return to it as valuable in its own right.”
– Enid Smith Becker
