“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” – Pablo Picasso
On April 25th, everyone came together at the Columbia Tower Club to do just that. As one of the members of the Columbia Tower Club Art Committee, I had the honor of partnering with members of Cornish College of the Arts for the annual 2014 CTC Art Committee Gala. It was an exciting night celebrating Cornish and their students. There were performances by students of Cornish, raffle prizes, and even a salsa demonstration. We raised thousands of dollars for future Cornish scholarships and I couldn’t be more proud.
I also had the opportunity to photograph the event including Sherry Raisbeck, our Honorary Chair for the evening. She is an incredible woman and an absolute pillar in the art community here in Seattle. Aristotle said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” I wholeheartedly agree. Sherry Raisbeck is the kindest, funniest, most intelligent woman and she has a passion for art and sharing that passion with the students of Cornish.
It was a wonderful evening filled with art, music, laughter, and goodness.
