Now more than any time in recent memory, it is time to invoke the image of the Goddesss in all her nurturing, forgiving and benevolent ways. Original "Goddessess" founding exhibitors, Suquamish sculptor Bob Lucas and painter Suzanne Haddon (formerly of Seattle, now living in California), will display brand new works: Mr. Lucas will show sculpture in steel, clay and concrete, video compositions and a group of commemorative lanterns made of paper and wax, while Ms. Haddon will show a group of mixed media paintings composed of collaged Asian papers and Sumi ink.

  Jeffrey Moose Gallery and One Union Square are proud to announce an exhibition of acrylic paintings on canvas by Aboriginal artists form the Warlukurlangu cooperative of Yuendemu, a small town in Australia's Central Desert, in the Lobby of One Union Square, on 6th Avenue, between University and Union, across from the Washington Athletic Club for the months April, May and June.

The Warlukurlangu cooperative is famous for its traditional, unspoiled imagery and reputation for integrity: the community is known as a source for enormous collaborative paintings, some including the work of as many as sixty artists and measuring as much as 12"x22", and traditional ground paintings, the root of all the famous dot-painting imagery from Australia's desert. One such work graced last year's "Spirit Country" survey exhibition at San Francisco's Palace of the Legion of Honor. Collaborative community works appeared at the California show and, now, in the collection of Robert Kaplan and Margaret Levy, on display at the Seattle Art Museum. Works by some of the same artists were exhibited, to great popular and critical acclaim, earlier this year at Jeffrey Moose Gallery.

The art names from this community include internationally recognized talents such as Judy Napangardi Watson, Paddy Japaljarri Sims and Jack Jakamarra Ross, talents from the first and third generations of Central Desert dot-painters. Sims and Ross were awarded the Telstra (Gallery and Museum) Indigenous Art Award (from Australia's Northern Territories) for Works on Paper in this year's competition.

Australian Aboriginal dot-paintings are essentially aerial maps of sacred places, composed of dots, animal tracks and symbols which describe the Dreamtime (Creation) myths of the plants and animals which have sustained select language groups for as long as 200,000 years. Aboriginal artists inheret a natural totem (plant, animal or otherwise..) upon their birth and they are obligated by tradition to spread the story to others. Contemporary painters are links in an ancient tradition of Oral History.

For more information, please contact Jeffrey Moose Gallery, 206 467 6951 or via e-mail at: jmoose@oz.net. The gallery is open M-F 10-6 pm and 12-5 on Sat.
