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.

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.

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,

This Last Week for the November Show
Katie Creytz has a number of beautiful graphite drawings in the gallery. She is spinning ideas about art history and personal history into new visions.
Austin Stiegemeier has a couple of beautiful drawings complimenting Katie’s drawings.
Dan’s work is made from cash that he has collected from around the world. They have a wonderful commentary made from the images on bills. Dan also made them small enough to fit into anywhere. Wonderful small, intimate work.

A delightful show pulling together loads of ways of making things. Many of the images suggest new means of working with fibers, or how fibers might be seen as operating.
Bradd continues to look at what we have around us, and to draw into our memory of places, and shows.
Today: Chris Tyllia sits from noon to four,
Lance Sinnema, from four to eight.
