Senior Lecturer Howard Barlow and Lorraine Barlow were invited by curator Vicki Halper to participate in Matched Makers: Northwest Artist Couples at the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner, Washington. The exhibit opens this Saturday, October 1, 2016. Matched Makers: Northwest Artist Couples displays the work of 28 couples who have shared creative lives. The 56 artists, born between 1877 and 1983, include many of the most prominent and admired in regional history. They work in all media, usually independently but sometimes paired. The exhibition puts their art in the context of their lives, and shows that both complimentary and widely divergent styles are sustained by loving relationships.
