August 21 - September 5

Celeste creates site-specific installations to adorn storefronts, city parks, special events, and most recently the stage. Known for her cut paper works, Celeste has collaborated with Seattle’s zoe|juniper in their premier of BeginAgain at On the Boards. Her first permanent metal sculpture, Bounty, functions as a threshold for Jackson Park Trail in North Seattle with support from 1% for Public Art and the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, harkening to the lush, abundant beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

CoCA Lab: Artist in Residence

In which CoCA invites an artist, or group of artists, to transform the 5,000 square feet of Georgetown gallery space into an art laboratory.

Celeste is currently the recipient of Pratt Fine Art Center 2014-2015 Artbridge Fellowship.

Celeste will be at the gallery frequently, Tuesday-Friday, 10am-4pm. CoCA is open to the public and encourages dropping in, so the public may visit, explore the art and chat with the artist. 

 This project was supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture.
