American Painting Today is a huge, grandly titled show of 120 paintings by 90 local artists. But it's situated in the exceedingly modest haunt of the ugly, dusty former Value Village store on 11th Avenue, which is about to be redeveloped into something much more expensive and exclusive. (In the interstitial time, art is happening there.) Seattle painter Matthew Offenbacher organized the show—he invited dozens of artists and told them to invite their friends. It's a community-building exercise that turns out to be a strong painting survey, with new works by Mark Takamichi Miller, Juan Alonso, Laura Castellanos, Jeffry Mitchell, Claire Cowie, Ken Kelly, Nathan DiPietro, Francisco Guerrero, Rachel Maxi, Colleen Hayward, Leena Joshi, Mary Ann Peters, Jennifer Beedon Snow, Claude Zervas, Whiting Tennis, and more, more, more. If you can't make it during the regular gallery hours (or if you want to stop by on December 17, the show's last day) email to schedule an appointment.
