Located on Seattle’s First Hill, the Frye Art Museum showcases works from the Frye Founding Collection of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century European paintings and notable exhibitions of works by internationally renowned and emerging contemporary artists.
To Apr 16 Jim Woodring: The Pig Went Down to the Harbor at Sunrise and Wept, ink drawings commissioned by the museum, created using an oversized fountain pen of Woodring's own invention. This series delves deeper into the surreal and fantastical universe that is central to the artist's greater project. To Apr 30 Archipenko: A Modern Legacy, a major retrospective on the life and work of Alexander Archipenko (1887-1964), a leading figure in the historic European avant-garde, who reinvigorated sculpture with dynamic creativity at the beginning of the 20th century. To Jan 21, 2018 Frye Salon, a restaging of the Founding Collection as it was installed in the home gallery of Charles and Emma Frye.
REPRESENTING: Jim Woodring, Alexander Archipenko, and artists of the Frye Founding Collection including Ludwig Dill, Nikolai Nikanorovich Dubovskoi, Alexander Max Koester, Gabriel von Max, Mihály de Munkácsy, Dániel Somogyi, and Franz von Stuck.
