Schack Art Center juried show features 90 artists

EVERETT — Talk about eclectic.

Sculpture, jewelry, mixed media, paintings, photography, fiber art, glass, basketry. This show has it all.

Schack Art Center’s 20th Juried Art Exhibit opened this week and is displayed through April 23.

This biennial favorite features diverse works from 90 emerging and established Northwest artists.

Nearly 400 pieces were submitted to the panel of jurors — the well-known local artists James Arrabito, Chris Hopkins and Verena Schwippert.

Arrabito, a photographer, and Schwippert, a sculptor, were this past year’s artists of the year at the Schack. Hopkins, a painter, has a background in commercial art.

“This year’s collection features many of the region’s sought after and collectable artists,” Arrabito said in a statement from the Schack. “The combined level of sheer skill, raw talents and massive presentation truly make this show a must-see.”

Schack Art Center, a nonprofit, won the 2014 Governor’s Award for Outstanding Arts Organization.

The center has eight art production studios for classes in painting, drawing, glass arts, printmaking, metalsmithing, as well as a new exhibit space in the loft.

The biennial Juried Art Exhibit at the Schack Art Center is displayed through April 23. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday at 2921 Hoyt Ave., Everett. Admission is free. More at schack.org.
