SEATTLE, WA (PRWEB) November 15, 2011
Pulitzer-Prize winning Political Cartoonist, David Horsey and his Mom, Jeanne Horsey open their first ever, joint art exhibit at Aljoya Thornton Place at 450 N.E. 100th St. in North Seattle with a reception on Thursday, November 17 from 4pm - 6:30pm.
The exhibit is open to the public and runs through February 21, 2012. Advance reservations are required to attend the opening reception with David and Jeanne Horsey at 206-306-7920.
In total, more than 15 David Horsey pieces and 10 Jeanne Horsey works are on display.
David Horsey’s politically focused cartoons are known worldwide. Jeanne Horsey’s work in mixed media has received more limited exposure.
Horsey points out that his mother encouraged creativity for him at an early age and often inspired his work through her fearless, artistic examples.
“She [mom] is the true artist in the family,” says Horsey of his mother. “She has an artistic spirit. She is always trying new things.”
Prior to retirement, Jeanne Horsey worked for Seattle Public Schools supporting learning for blind students through use of brail. Some of her works include metal brail sheets with paint, creating rare and interesting textures.
The Horsey exhibit is part of the Aljoya Thornton Place ongoing art series directed by Art Curator, June Sekiguchi. Through partnerships with local non-profit arts organizations, galleries and artists, Era Living, the family-owned parent company of Aljoya Thornton Place is committed to bringing art to its communities and sharing art with its neighbors.
