Frye Art Museum First Hill
Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through May 19 2013
Nicolai Fechin: The last time the Frye did a major exhibition of this eccentric Russian painter’s portraits was in 1976. Nordstrom had gone public five years earlier, Microsoft was a year-old start-up, and Jeff Bezos was an 11-year-old human. The paintings are bright and sometimes very, very weird.
