Artist Nathan DiPietro Finds Inspiration At Seabrook
"I was drawn to Seabrook because it's the physical edge of the newest wave of civilization, creeping up the coast towards the northwest tip of America. The architecture evokes the beach communities of Nantucket and incorporates craftsman and bungalow accents. Oyster shells line the paths. The cedar shingles on the houses come from the mill two miles north, in dilapidated Moclips. Fire pits and shuffleboard edge the park. The town's grocery and restaurant complete the package, providing all the comforts of urban living. It's the border where wilderness becomes Seabrook that I find to be most interesting." - Nathan DiPietroThe official grand opening of DiPietro's display called "New Northwest Coast: Investigating Seabrook Washington" will be held this Thursday, March 18, starting at 5:30pm. Please join members of our Seabrook Team and other distinguished artists and guests for this reception. The Woodside/Braseth Gallery is located on 9th Avenue in downtown Seattle.
