SAM Gallery Presents: Seeing Light

Jan 4 – 29 2023

Seattle Art Museum

SAM Gallery

10 AM – 5 PM

Artists create contrast with light and shadow around their subjects in Seeing Light this January at SAM Gallery. Against a wall, along the street, from above or below, the photographs by these local photographers consider the energy of the subject and remind us to take a closer look at every artwork we encounter.

Dramatic beauty prevails throughout the works of new SAM Gallery photo-based artists Berhanu Wells and Daniel J. Gregory in this inspiring look at how we experience light.

Meet the artists at the Opening Reception of Seeing Light on Saturday, January 7 from 2–4 pm.
