As if anyone ever needed a good reason to visit The Sorrento's Fireside Room/Hunt Club, Glenn Rudolph is kindly providing us one anyway. Artist Roy McMakin put on his curator hat (that fella wears so many hats!) and selected 14 of his personal favorites from Glenn's private collection.

Rudolph has been documenting the changing Northwest landscape for the past 30 years. Glenn explained, "I once thought that railroads were forever. Watching a transcontinental line evaporate was a strange experience." He was also one of three Seattle artists (along with Mark Mumford and Roy McMakin) to be included in the West coast survey, Baja to Vancouver.

The show opened on May 1st and will be up through September. Glenn and Roy hosted a talk last Monday. This is the inaugural exhibit of The Sorrento's new biannual exhibit program.
