THE PENDLETON HOUSE
We, The Pendleton House, are actively pursuing new territory within the art world. Help us as we unravel a new sense of purpose for our generation of artists. Your support helps cultivate a thriving group of investigative artists.
The core founders of the Pendleton House met and began collaborating at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA. Over the past three years we have collaborated with dancers, musicians, sculptors and multidisciplinary artists, and are currently connecting with artists from across in the country . This innovation was the beginning of the Pendleton House. We were a family of artists before we ever dreamed of creating a show or this home.
The Pendleton House provides a solid foundation from which each individual artist, or tenant as we have come to call them, can leave and return as their own careers, works and lives develop.
OUR PLAN FOR A BEGINNING
The Pendleton House will present its first full length show, A Beginning, at Velocity Dance Center on the evening of August 30th, 2013. A Beginning will take advantage of all the Pendleton House artists by providing the audience with live sensory experiences that utilize both the stage and unconventional spaces inside Velocity. A Beginning touches upon the themes of light: physical and external, metaphysical and generative. What does light hide? What stifles our internal light? What fuels it? How much as humans do we depend on light for growth and survival?
Your support funds the creation of A Beginning and provides a solid foundation for our future. YOU can help lay the foundation of The Pendleton House.
Become part of the passion that drives us to create. Indulge in your curiosity and take part in the creation of something built from the ground up.
Dare to build our first show, A Beginning
