Emerge/Evolve 2018: Rising Talents in Kiln Glass
August 23 - January 12, 2020

Emerge/Evolve 2018: Rising Talents in Kiln-Glass showcases an international host of emerging artists whose cutting edge work in kiln-glass (or kilnformed glass) offers a different perspective on the medium. Bullseye Glass Company started the Emerge competition 18 years ago as a commitment to emerging artists working in kilnformed glass. Bullseye's Emerge/Evolve 2018 featured 43 finalists—representing 12 countries—alongside new work from four former Emerge finalists showcasing the evolution of their talent. The Bellevue Arts Museum exhibition will feature award winners from the Emerge 2018 competition alongside the Evolve artists.

Robert Williams: The Father of Exponential Imagination
October 4, 2019 - March 8, 2020

Robert Williams is a unique and contradictory figure in contemporary American art. A deep thinker on the meaning and making of visual culture in the late 20th century, Williams began his artistic career as one of the key figures on the California hot rod scene in the 1960s. He is a painter of exquisitely detailed allegories and epic history paintings, as well as being an instigator of one of the most profane counter-culture comic books ever published. Read more here.
