MLT LIBRARY EXHIBITIONS Now Showing
Mountlake Terrace LIBRARY Jason Statt
Exhibit Opens September 1
September 1 – 30, 2023
The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission presents the Jason Statt Exhibit at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue W.
Jason Statt is an artist and educator living in Seattle, WA. They are in the process of earning a Master’s in Teaching from Seattle University as they begin their career as a professional painter.
Jason’s work seeks to excite the imagination through evocative scenes. They often utilize augmented images of the natural world and moments in history as conduits for discussing their personal experience with mental health and neurodivergence. Layering these narratives helps to elicit a meaningful experience that many viewers can resonate with even without knowing the whole context. While subject matters vary, within every piece is a story waiting to be uncovered.
Jason strives to create an impactful feeling that stays with the viewer long after engaging with their work. Observers will have a surreal experience while feeling transported to a liminal space between reality and something otherworldly. Captivated by the often-cryptic imagery, the viewer finds lucidity in the elegant dance of colour and light that engulfs the subject.
The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission oversees the library exhibits as part of its mission to promote cultural events in the community. Library hours are Monday-Thursday 9am-8pm, Friday-Saturday 10am-6pm, and Sunday 1-5pm.
