Opening October 3, Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) presents a group show, ​Ceci N’est Pas une Pipe d’un Homme. ​A partner organization with “Refract: The Seattle Glass Experience,” the show seeks to empower the skill and work of womxn flameworkers from the Pacific Northwest alongside Seattle’s luminaries of glass art. The exhibit furthers CoCA’s 2019 dedication to advancing original works by femme-identifying artists.

Ceci N’est Pas une Pipe d’un Homme will include artwork by Patricia Davidson, Lisa’s Pieces, Blossom Glass, Karen Buhler, Shayla Behrman, Danielle Guthrie, Erin Bourguignon, Tammy Baller, Lacey Walton, and Amber Pellegrini.

Ceci N’est Pas une Pipe d’un Homme is the second iteration of a previous show from CoCA, Ceci N’est pas une Pipe: Flameworking on the Brink of Legalization​, which focused on the effects of the 2012 passing of Initiative 502, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. This second revival of CoCA’s November 2013 glass show now shifts its focal point to the experiences and artistic vision of womxn in a male-dominated arts field.

Refract is the nation’s newest festival showcasing creative uses of glass in the Pacific Northwest. Hosted by Chihuly Garden and Glass in partnership with Visit Seattle, this inaugural event brings together more than 50 artists and art organizations to showcase what makes the glass community so special.

CoCA is a nonprofit gallery that ​serves the Pacific Northwest as a catalyst and forum for the advancement, development, and understanding of Contemporary Art. ​This is the sixth show in the 2019 exhibition season, a year dedicated to amplifying female-identified voices and themes. #fightsilence
