The Frye Art Museum recent exhibition, Chamber Music, celebrates thirty-six Seattle artists, including Alan Maskin. The exhibition was curated by Scott Lawrimore, the Frye’s Deputy Director, Collections and Exhibitions.

Each artist created a newly commissioned art work in response to musical compositions based on James Joyce’s volume of poetry entitled Chamber Music. The artists included in the exhibition span generations and reflect a broad aesthetic spectrum. Uniting them is a shared dedication to artist-generated activities that strengthen Seattle’s arts community beyond their own art practices. Chamber Music is both a celebration of individual mark-making and a cooperative composition about love for the City of Seattle and how artists choose to leave their mark on it.

In addition to Alan Maskin, other participating artists include:Julie Alexander, Sharon Arnold, Byron Au Yong, Bonnie Biggs, D.W. Burnam, Robert Campbell, Jaq Chartier, Carl Chew, Claire Cowie, Anne Focke, Klara Glosova, Cable Griffith, Francisco Guerrero, Todd Jannausch, Shaun Kardinal, Carolyn Law, Margie Livingston, Greg Lundgren, Norman Lundin, Amanda Manitach, Ries Niemi, NKO, Matthew Offenbacher, D.K. Pan, Mary Ann Peters, PUNCH Gallery (Renee Adams, Howard Barlow, Justin Beckman, Justin Gibbens, Joanna Thomas), Bill Ritchie, Serrah Russell, Norie Sato, Rafael Soldi, Sierra Stinson, Michael Van Horn, Joey Veltkamp, Jamie Walker, and Robert Yoder.
