ARTRUMPS Resistance and Action at BONFIRE

BONFIRE Gallery in Seattle's International District presents 'ARTRUMPS: Resistance and Action,' a diverse group of artists' powerful response to this unprecedented time of political upheaval through provocative questioning and creative humor.

Throughout history artists have lead the way using their work as a voice of dissent, protest and action for change. The purpose of 'ARTRUMPS Resistance and Action' is to present artists in a variety of mediums, cultures and geographical locations, inspiring people with politically engaging artistic expression and points of view.

'This is precisely the time artists go to work.' - Toni Morrison

The artists and the gallery are donating 50% of the sales of the work to nonprofits of their choice, organizations working for justice, equality, resistance, legal support and change.

The exhibition will open April Fool's Day, Saturday April 1, with a reception from 6-9pm, at the BONFIRE Gallery, 603 S. Main St., in the Panama Hotel, and continue through June 2. The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5pm, and by appointment. First Thursday evening artwalk openings during the exhibition will be April 6 and May 4. For more information, call 206-790-1073 or visit www.thisisbonfire.com.

'The purpose of art is the fight for freedom. Everything is art. Everything is politics.' - Ai Weiwei

'A punk is a person who asks the world uncomfortable questions and does everything possible to make sure the world can't cop out & that is what art is for us, and without art, life can't exist.' - Pussy Riot

'I prefer to accept only one type of power: the power of art over trash, the triumph of magic over the brute.' - Vladimir Nabokov
