PRINT TALK

In conjunction with the Quartermaster Press Studio 25th anniversary retrospective, a monotype demonstration by Valerie Willson will take place at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at Vashon Center for the Arts. In Willson’s demonstration, four different techniques will be explored. Catch the exhibit at VCA before or after the demo.

PHOTO SHOW SHOWCASES YOUTH

An exhibit showcasing young island photographers will run through May in the lobby of Vashon Center for the Arts. The photographs, created during a Vashon Artists in the Schools residency by photographer Ray Pfortner, were made when Vashon High School students took to the streets of Seattle to capture shapes, colors and textures of the cityscape. Works are available for purchase.

PROVOCATIVE PLAY TO BOW

An interdisciplinary theater piece, “Propaganda for the Self,” will run at Vashon Center for the Arts on May 26 and 27. The show is the co-creation of Eli Steffen and Corinne Manning. Steffen grew up on Vashon and partnered with Manning to bring this project to the island. Using utopian queer love stories, dance movements inspired by superheroes and audience engagement, the show aims to explore themes of identity intersecting with the idea of the American Dream.
