Friend of the club, David Martin, will be our guest speaker presenting a talk based on his recently published book, George Tsutakawa: Early Works on Paper.
The book is a companion to the exhibit of the same name, which David curated, currently on at the Cascadia Art Museum in Edmonds through March 26th. (we will try to organize a field trip to see the exhibit in March).
One of the leading Northwest artists of his generation, George Tsutakawa (1910–97) was internationally known for his sculpture and fountain designs. However, a lesser-known aspect of his career was the production of blockprints, watercolors, and works on paper that began in the 1920s and continued throughout his career.

Please join us and help get the word out to friends about this fascinating talk at our February program meeting (via zoom only this month.)
