SAM Gallery Presents: Metsä Vastaa

Aug 30 – Oct 1 2023

Seattle Art Museum

SAM Gallery

10 AM – 5 PM

Join us in September for Metsä Vastaa at SAM Gallery.

Metsä Vastaa is a Finnish phrase meaning "The Forest Answers." Inspired by a recent shared residency in Finland, artists Kate Protage and Chris Sheridan invite us to journey with them through the landscapes of a foreign land. From controlled precision in paint to flowing monochromatic ink, these works wind us down paths both real and imagined.

Meet the artists at the opening reception of Metsä Vastaa on Saturday, September 9 from 2–4 pm.
