The Bellevue Art Museum is currently showing Falling Feels a Lot Like Flying.  Winner of the John and Joyce Price Award of Excellence of the BAM Biennial 2010: Clay Throwdown!, ceramic artist Dirk Staschke returns to BAM with his first museum solo exhibition, Falling Feels a Lot Like Flying. Desire and consumption are at the heart of this lavish and startlingly realistic installation. Inspired by the bountiful Vanitas still-life paintings of 16th century Northern Europe and the excessive ornamentation of the Baroque period, Staschke captures the beauty and opulence of a moment in time – creamy and syrupy stacks of sweets – yet, decay and collapse is looming right around the corner.  Get more infromation here
