Make.Shift Gallery November Art Walk: Radiant Reflections

For the month of November, Make.Shift Gallery in downtown Bellingham is excited to feature three Bellingham-based artists who incorporate light and shadow into intriguingly ethereal sculptures and installations. “Radiant Reflections” will feature works by Claire Simpson, Andrew Lui Robinson, and Carly McCartney.

November Art Walk 1

Claire Simpson’s “re(fr)act” series is all about the viewer. Attendees are encouraged to shine their cellphones through these interactive sculptures and discover infinitely different ways to view and relate to light and color. Andrew Lui Robinson’s pieces use symbolic processes, like burning and chemical reactions, to create poetic sculptures that explore existential tensions and our relationship with language. Carly McCarney’s ongoing interactive installation, “Instruments
of Hostages,” memorializes the dead from reported mass shootings in the U.S., from 1997 to 2019.

McCartney mass produces paper birds sculptures to protest the mass production of guns in the U.S. Viewers are encouraged to engage with the sculptures and the shadows they cast on the gallery walls. The artist encourages audience-collaborators to “treat the installation as if it is a
playground full of life, potential and curiosity.”

Please join us for opening night on First Friday Art Walk on November 1, 2019 from 6 to 10 p.m. For more information about the Art Walk or Make.Shift please visit our website at or contact Jessyca Murphy at

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
