Often a nostalgic “Main Street,” or a shabby interior sets the stage for Siler’s disparate characters to interact. Siler reflects back to us a humble and occasionally unflattering view of humanity. We see ourselves, accepting and perhaps even forgiving our own flawed nature with the perspective of a little humor. A longtime Pullman, Washington resident and WSU Art Department Professor Emeritus, Siler is fluent in several mediums. Meet Me At the Spot will feature paintings, drawings, woodblock prints and ceramic works spanning Siler’s lifelong artistic career. Museum of Arts and Culture. 2316 W.
