The Renton Municipal Arts Commission proudly presents original origami quilts by local youth artist Brielle Creaser.  The exhibit will be on display from March 28 to May 1, 2009.   The Commission will host an artist’s reception on Saturday, April 11, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.  This free event will provide the public with an opportunity to meet the artist and discuss her work. The city’s Arts Commissioners and other city officials will also attend.

Brielle Creaser is an 11 year-old artist who enjoys creating art projects in all mediums.  She learned how to make two-dimensional origami squares in the fourth grade.  Recently, she has been nominated to represent her school at the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.  The conference provides opportunities for exceptional students from across the country to learn about leadership and social advocacy in order to make a positive impact in their communities.  She is excited about the Carco Theatre show as a way to provide exposure to her unique style of quilting.

Carco Theatre, adjacent to the Renton Community Center, is located at 1717 Maple Valley Highway at the intersection of I-405 and Maple Valley Highway. Theatre hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with additional viewing on show nights.
