The Jacob Lawrence Gallery is pleased to host Seattle artist Miha Sarani. This exhibition, Amends, is a broad survey of Sarani's work, focusing on portraiture while also reflecting his Slovenian heritage.

Amends was arranged with assistance from Michael Biggins, an Affiliate Professor in the University of Washington Department of Slavic Languages & Literatures as well as Honorary Consul of the Republic of Slovenia for Washington State. This exhibition coincides with and highlights a fundraising initiative to expand the UW's ongoing campus-wide arts and research-based engagement with Slovenia, which has existed for nearly sixty years. One example is a scholars exchange between the UW and the University of Ljubljana.

Meet Miha Sarani, Michael Biggins and others over small bites at a special reception on Wednesday, November 2 from 5–8pm. Read more about the reception here – we hope to see you there!
