Bellevue College hosts art by Travis Hough and 'Seven'

An exhibit of works by painter Travis Hough and the printmakers group known as “Seven” goes on display Jan. 4 in Bellevue College’s Gallery Space.

A reception for the artists will be held from 4-8 p.m. Jan. 5 in the gallery, which is located in room 271 of the college’s D Building, on the south courtyard of the main campus.

Both the reception and the exhibits, which will remain on display through the month of January, are open to the public free of charge.

Hough uses found, painted and fabricated elements to produce large-scale, architectural, minimalist paintings influenced by his Japanese heritage.

After earning a master of fine arts degree from Montana State University, Hough lived in Japan for one year to work and research his artistic influences. His works continue to evoke Japanese imagery including tatami, tansu and samurai banners.

“Seven” is a group of Seattle area printmakers – Carmi Weingrod, Colleen Leahy, Dri Ralph, Jill Pollock, Kelda Martensen, Pam Galvani and Sandy Eshleman – who meet monthly to share new work.

"We share a commitment to creating innovative works on paper,” Martensen said. “Though our interpretations of the mediums within printmaking are varied, unique and sometimes unorthodox, we have a respect for and interest in bringing the rich tradition of printmaking into our individual contemporary practices."

Bellevue College’s Gallery Space is open to the public during the academic year, and admission is always free.
