Lawrence Pitre: We Are One


Gallery 4Culture Pioneer Square
Sept 6–27, Mondays–Fridays
opening reception Thurs Sept 6, 6–8 pm, free


Recommended by Emily Pothast

Like the great Seattle artist Jacob Lawrence—with whom he studied at the University of Washington—Lawrence Pitre uses bold, stylized figures to create paintings embedded with political, social, and cultural history. Born and raised in the Central District, Pitre has witnessed decades of transformation and economic displacement firsthand. In We Are One, he presents paintings of historical people, places, and events from Seattle’s African American, East Asian, and Jewish communities, from the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II to the radical activism of the Gang of Four. “The inclusiveness behind the work is meant to show that we need each other again,” says Pitre. “We have to come back together and start standing up for our community as a whole.”
