We have just finished the largest and most compelling exhibit ever with over 150 pieces of artwork in the historic Seattle King Street Stations 17,000 square exhibit space. The exhibit, “Truth B Told” celebrated the 12th Annual Onyx Fine Arts exhibit. It is estimated that at least 1500 visitors saw the exhibit with many return visitors. A few comments received from visitors are shown below.
These comments result from the wonderful creative artwork of 48 artists. Winners of awards deserves mentioning again –
First Place and People Choice Award was awarded to Carletta Carrington Wilson for her installation, “Letter To A Laundress”.
Second Place was awarded to Jay Taylor for his painting, “Unreconciled”.
Third Place was awarded to Donald Leonard for his painting, “Seasons Of Prayer”.
Honorable Mention was awarded to Ashby Reed for his painting, “Shades Of Brown”.
Honorable Mention was awarded to Vincent Keele for his painting, “Bliss”.
Again, worthy of special mention was the video installation on the significance of the Pullman Porters and Maids and the display of artworks by:
Marita Dingus and Barbara Earl Thomas.
The success of an exhibit of this quality and magnitude was a direct result of the participating artists, volunteers and hard working board members.
The mission of Onyx Fine Arts is being achieved.
In the meantime, I invite everyone to continue the support by visiting Gallery Onyx located at 2407 – 1st Avenue in the heart of the Seattle Belltown neighborhood.
At Gallery Onyx you can experience a continuance of the wonderful artistic creativity which was realized in the King Street Station exhibit. Gallery hours are 1 - 5pm Friday and Saturday and 1 - 9pm during the second Friday of the month Belltown Artwalk.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
Earnest Thomas, President
