About the Exhibition:
CoCA and Bherd Studios Gallery are collaborating to bring attention to Pacific Northwest urban contemporary artists creating sanctioned murals and/or ephemeral work in public urban environments.
(Un)Sanctioned will educate viewers about a commonly misunderstood and perceived "outsider" art community and begin a conversation about the controversial nature of street art. The show will also celebrate the diversity of the unique PNW street style aesthetic which tends towards a cooler color palette utilizing greens and blues; often incorporating natural elements indigenous to our area; and also giving nods to Native American line form drawing and Asian pop culture.
Artists include:179, Carlos Aguilar & KSera, Zachary Bohnenkamp, CASH, Duffy, Jesse Edwards, Hera, David Joel, Jesse Link, John Osgood, Parskid and Sneke.
