Oberlin Alumnus Corin Hewitt is having a show at Seattle Art Museum’s downtown SAM space.  Corin Hewitt is the featured Next artist, a program designed to expose the public to up-and-coming artists who are still under-represented.    Hewitt works in photography, sculpture and performance and recently had a show at the Whitney where he performed and installed a piece called Seed Stage.    During this performance Hewitt used a variety of materials which he processed in a variety of ways, from casting to canning to eating or sculpting.    The SAM exhibition features a collection of photographs taken from a performance piece exhibited at a gallery in Portland, Oregon.    The Portland performance piece included still-lifes of organic and inorganic objects which the artist photographed as they decayed and changed.   The body of work, called Weavings: Performance #2 (Portland, Oregon) will be on display at SAM until October 18th.   Corin Hewitt is represented by Taxter and Spengemann Gallery in New York.
