Dan has brought in a stunning collection of pieces creating an environment you can sense is toxic.

Lead and rust every where in the room.

Lead acid batteries threatening folks in the space, not as imminent or immediate threats, but it does offer suggestions for another time.

It’s fascinating.

Meliane Lieb Taylor‘s installation: Echo

continues this week.

We are thrill by the weather this week. And welcome you to come by the gallery this week to look at Melanie Lieb Taylor‘s installation. She has put together a collection of images and objects to reflect on the Holocaust. Melanie has put a human twist to help engage you in thinking about the 30’s and 40’s in Germany. We have a collection of teath she has moodeled and covered some of the surfaces with gold leaf.

This is an illustration from a children’s book. It’s a cautionary story that the worst thing you could become is a Jew. It draws a link between Jews and fungus, growing off a host.

Thursday: Yaro Shon Neils is in the gallery from two to six.

Friday: Lisa Nappa is in the Gallery from Noon to four, then Melanie sits from four to eight.

Saturday: Roger Ralston sits from noon to four.

There are also fascinating figure forms made with flowers in the small gallery.

Come by and take a look!

ECHO – A VISUAL EXPLORATION OF ANTI-SEMITISM

NEW ARTWORK BY MELANIE LIEB

June 2, 2017– Saranac Art Projects, 25 W. Main St., Spokane WA 99201

In Echo, Melanie Lieb is creating an emotional environment inspired by centuries of racial persecution towards the Jewish people. This series will be executed using multiple artistic disciplines which include mixed media paintings and installation. Melanie’s paintings will explore Anti-Semitic depictions of Jews throughout history, and her installations will be haunting reminders of life and death in the concentration camps. Echo will take the viewer on a journey through the past where they will visually move forward through time, and then be forced backward as the regressive present mirrors the past. This exhibition will communicate to the Spokane community and beyond the struggles and atrocities that this small but resilient group of people have endured throughout history.

Echo will open at the Saranac Art-Projects on Friday June 2nd 2017 4-9pm

and will be open to the public for the entire month during gallery hours.. Melanie Lieb is a visual artist working in multiple medias which include painting, jewelry, sculpture, ceramic and installation. Born in 1975 and raised in the suburbs of Chicago IL,
