Fall Arts Guide | Visual arts: Picasso and much more

Picasso, the performance group Implied Violence, quilts and more are part of the Seattle visual-arts scene this fall.

Special to The Seattle Times

Deal: The Kirkland Arts Center

The Kirkland Arts Center has a lot going on, from affordable art classes to free exhibitions in its attractive gallery. The reason I love this non-profit space is its mission to support emerging artists and curators. That's right, emerging curators need support, too, and because KAC offers its space to independent curators, we've received some really fresh shows from people who have good eyes and heads for art.

Beginning Oct. ober 15, KAC's Cable Griffith and guest curator Genevieve Tremblay are putting on a show called "Steambot," CQ which they describe as "an experimental and collaborative project, incubator, and exhibition, featuring artwork that combines both current and 1900's-era technology."

Start your engines, ladies and gentlemen, the fall art season is about to begin.

Let's not talk about Picasso for a moment. Yes, Picasso-mania is striking Seattle this fall — with a major exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum and print shows at the Davidson Gallery and Greg Kucera Gallery — but first let's talk about some art that makes Picasso's once-radical experiments with form, color and composition look downright tame.

Beginning Oct. 9, the Frye Art Museum presents the first art-museum exhibition of the Seattle-based performance group Implied Violence, which has generated acclaim from critics and wild enjoyment and frank befuddlement from audiences around the world. The show will include costumes, props, photographs and videos from past performances and a new performance created for the Frye.

For a less adrenaline-infused art experience, you might take a lovely walk through one of the many quilt and textile shows that are going up this fall. From Oct. 2 through Feb. 27, 2011, the Burke Museum is mounting the first major exhibition of the museum's international textile collection, showing off exquisite work from the peoples of the Americas, Asia and the Pacific islands ("Weaving Heritage: Textile Masterpieces From the Burke Collection").

And, don't forget, some outstanding examples of art made by a certain Spanish artist named Pablo are coming to town. "Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris" opens Oct. 8 at the Seattle Art Museum.
