Her life was memorable, her work was groundbreaking, and her public art is enduring. ArtsWA, the Washington State Arts Council, recognized Doris Chase as one of its most pre-eminent artists. Here, we see how form, especially geometrics and symmetrics, formed an essential part of her sculptures and woodworks.
