Saturdays, 12-7 p.m. Continues through June 19 2017

The current exhibition at the Alice includes a small sculpture of a bird, hand-carved and painted by Reverend Miyeko Kawata Uriu while she was in a Japanese internment camp. Uriu is the grandmother of Seattle artist Markel Uriu, and Beverly O'Mara is Markel's mother, both of whom also have works in the show. Together these three objects tell a story of family lineage and cultural survival through mediums that are often labeled "craft," and therefore devalued by a patriarchal white lens. Curated by Satpreet Kahlon, From Which We Rise presents 15 works by 15 artists representing seven powerful matrilineal histories.
