Tip Toland at BAM

I attended Tip Toland’s opening Friday night at the Bellevue Art Museum. The Vaughn artist is having her first museum solo show there: “Melt, The Figure in Clay.”

I decided to shoot a video because one of Toland’s sculptures is kinetic – a new direction for her.

Check out the video here.

At the end you’ll see a short conversation between Toland (on left) and one of the models she used for a sculpture in the show (the still photo above). It was a surreal moment to see the model next to her lifelike clone. But then Toland is a surrealist so it fits.

The show is up through Feb. 8

Toland trivia: she is a descendant of Tacoma pioneer Charles Wright.
