First Friday: Inspiration from graphic novels, dreams, motherhood and Iraq and Syria

The show features three regional artists who work in three different mediums with very distinct styles. Yet their works all share an evocative dream-like quality. Western Washington University associate art professor Seiko Purdue works primarily in fiber to create pieces exploring identity and environment.
