Regina Hackett identifies herself as "the former art critic for the Seattle P-I," a newspaper that left her, not the other way around. Now she publishes her reviews similarly to how the P-I publishes today.
Here she weighs in on a 2010 Seattle Art Museum retrospective by the late-Hornby Island artist Jerry Pethick. Included in her review is an image of one of Pethick's greatest works, Wheelbarrow & Cabin (1987-1988), a hinge work that links the lens-based practices that have come to characterize Vancouver art (Ian Wallace, Jeff Wall, Stan Douglas and Vikky Alexander) with the sculptural montage/installation works of more recent artists, such as Brian Jungen (see below).
