Natalie Krick: Promise You’ll Make Me Up

July 1 - August, 2024

Promise you'll make me up features photographic objects by Seattle artist Natalie Krick. Krick manipulates appropriated photographs of Marilyn Monroe, transforming her iconic image into fragments and mirrors. Using techniques like bending, scratching, layering, puncturing and masking photographs with reflective resin, Krick creates visually striking objects that evoke Monroe's iconic image while simultaneously rendering her unrecognizable.  The Visual Arts program at Green River College was proud to feature Natalie Krick as our Artist in Residence this spring.  We are pleased to present a solo exhibition of her work in the gallery post-residency this summer.

Helen S. Smith Gallery

The Helen S. Smith Gallery on Green River College’s main campus was named in honor of the college Foundation’s first President. In addition to being one of the college’s founding members, she was known as a strong advocate for the arts in the community.

The gallery is located at the main entrance of the Holman Library, on the Green River College’s main campus. It hosts a number of shows each year, featuring the work of students and Northwest artists.
