Spokane Creative Firm Marks Anniversary with Exhibit

How does a creative firm celebrate 30 years in business? "Creatively," says CK Anderson. "We've spent the last three decades building relationships with talented specialists hired to help strengthen our company's outcomes," explains Anderson, principal and creative director at helveticka. "So we created an exhibit that celebrates unique perspectives from 30 of those people."

Curated, designed, written, and installed by Anderson and his team, Creative Experiences/Thirty Collaborators isn't your typical exhibit, he says. While work from a few commercial visual artists is presented, the essence of the show is the personal stories provided by the participants themselves. "When we reached out to these 30 collaborators," says Anderson, "we asked each to tell a story - about themselves, about their careers, about the creative experience. We were looking for tales of adventure; death-defying feats in the face of terrible danger. Maybe even one or two poking fun of clients."

What they got instead was far more personal: They shared insights; recalled interesting, funny, or challenging circumstances; revealed breakthrough moments in their careers; offered business philosophies; and, at times, described poignant moments.

Among those represented in the exhibit are artists, photographers, illustrators, programmers, videographers, media buyers, printers, animators, fabricators, composers - even a cartoonist. While the majority of them are from Spokane, some hail from as far away as Los Angeles and Minneapolis. Not only will the identities of the participants remain undisclosed until the exhibit opens in August, but the participants themselves are unaware of the company they keep.

"For those working in or around the creative industry," says Anderson, "we think they'll find these stories compelling and relatable. For those thinking about a career in the arts, or new to the creative profession, we hope it will be inspiring and informative. And for everyone else, we think it's a wonderful way to showcase some amazing local talent - the sort of creativity most people just don't realize is out there." CX30 will be hosted at the Terrain Gallery, 304 W Pacific, and runs August 3-31. Gallery hours are Thursday-Saturday, 5-7pm.
