“Grease Was the Word” - 12:00 pm
White River Valley Museum, 918 H Street SE, Auburn Community Campus, Auburn, WA 98002
An Exhibit That Rocks, Revs, and Celebrates Teenage Years in the 1950s and 60s. Come to Auburn for a rockin' trip back in time. Grease Was the Word is a new exhibit opening at the White River Valley Museum that looks at the quickly changing world of teenagers and their cars in 1950s and 60s America. Like every generation of youth, these teens challenged the social norms of their parents, but they had an additional tool at their disposal: the easily available automobile. This exhibit explores how cars enabled this generation of teens to socialize differently, travel further, and express themselves in ways that American culture had never seen before.The exhibit includes a collection of never-before-exhibited artifacts from the Gearlords Car Club, an Auburn-based teen car club that existed from 1962 - 1969. Other artifacts on display include: clothing, photographs, a juke box, and drive -in movie memorabilia including a screen airing instructional films from the era such as "How to Date" and "Teenicide".

Kittredge Gallery Features Multipanel Screenprints and Sculptures From Recycled Book Pages - 10:00 pm
Kittredge Art Gallery, University of Puget Sound, N. 15th St. at N. Lawrence St., Tacoma, WA
On view at Kittredge Gallery in October and early November are two new exhibitions of contemporary prints and sculpture, both drawing from familiar sources to create works that strive to shift the way we see our everyday world. In the Large Gallery is a body of work by printmaker Randy Bolton, who uses imagery from mass media and popular sources that he then alters and recombines through a collage-like process. The resulting images feel at first familiar and comfortable but carry an undercurrent of uncertainty or apprehension that undermines the viewer’s initial emotional response. Bolton has said: “For some time now in my work, I have aimed to communicate my ambivalent feelings of fascination and dismay about contemporary culture and society. My recent large-scale digital banner prints on canvas and the smaller screenprints on paper build upon the historic tradition of printmaking as a democratic voice, while expanding the discipline into new directions in terms of innovative approaches to process and content as a means of contemporary public discourse. ... I hope that viewers will be gently nudged into a different way of seeing and thinking. For an unblinking moment, maybe there will be an awareness of how appearances can deceive and how images can manipulate emotions to create a false sense of contentment and security.” On view in the Small Gallery is new work by Tacoma sculptor Holly A. Senn, who is known for her sculptures and installations created from discarded library books. In these labor-intensive works she explores the lifecycle of ideas—how ideas are generated, dispersed, referenced, or forgotten. She has stated: “I transform books—recognizable symbols of recorded and shared information—and their pages into new forms, using the iconic materials to consider the recursive nature of ideas. Because I look at permanence and impermanence, organisms and processes with visible regeneration cycles inspire my art.” Info:
