Artist Mackenzie Boetes' pieces are currently on display at Punch Gallery's 'Declarative Sentences' exhibit. Her work uses mundane, everyday objects to convey moving yet to the point phrases.

While Boetes' messages may be short, they are jam packed with truth and emotion. Pocket mirrors and pillowcases read "All we ever wanted was everything," "The whole things very complicated" and "They're just words."

These hand embroidered pieces speak volumes for fans of Boetes. The small wall-bound pieces elicit sentiments of hope, desire, acceptance and consequence, signs of a top notch installation. Those who are in the Seattle area can drop in to see Declarative Sentences on the weekend, or can visit on private terms with an appointment made in advance.
