Join artist and organizer Sukhie Patel for Art After Work, a community-focused tour of Bellevue Art Museum’s current exhibition, L’Affichomania: The Passion for French Posters — followed by a social hour, including a cash bar in the Bellevue Art Museum’s Forum.
Sukhie Patel is a printmaker, educator, community organizer, and sole proprietrix of Saparia Press. Drawing from her family’s legacy of running politically dissident and anti-colonial print shops, she has an affinity for handset type, wood engraving, collographs and wood cuts. Sukhie is a letterpress teacher and is passionate about public art and literacy education, especially amongst marginalized communities. She believes printing–with its roots in labour and industry– should always be an accessible tool of the people. Born in India, and raised between East Africa, the Pacific Northwest, and the UK, Sukhie calls upon her diasporic South Asian experience to inspire possibilities for intersectional, collective movement.
