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.

This week @ Saranac Art Projects

This week is a nice period of time for us.

We have Kate Vita and Nancy Hathaway showing work in the gallery.

Here is one of Nancy’s pieces. They are layers of work. Some if the image seems to be obscured from, maybe drawing. Part of the whole is the hand made paper, with inclusions.

We love looking at them, and thinking about what is going on as Nancy ,makes the pieces. A recurring question is what the layers suggest. Sometimes, they seem like Chinese scroll paintings. The middle passages between dramatic scenes. Or maybe they are references to Turner’s paintings and his romantic quality. Maybe after the images have been filtered through our contemporary experience.

Well:

This week, we have some delightful folks sitting the gallery. You can muse with them as you look at Nancy’s images.

Thursday: Hannah sits from noon to five pm.

Friday: Dan McCann sits from noon to four, and is followed by Lance.

Saturday: Margo Casstevens and Kurt Madison sit the gallery.

Everyone would be great to visit with while you are in the gallery.

Tell us what you see in Nancy’s paper constructions!

And just across the hall is the Saranac Pub, too.

The subtle work of working

March 12, 2015 § Leave a comment

 

There is a subtlety to working that comes out, only after the work has been done. Our two  current shows deliver on the idea of practicing and daily work. Kate Vita set a goal of a painting a day, and the work involved in the task shows itself in the paintings in the gallery. They are delightful works engaging the light we have here. Kate is looking at the segments on the world we see. They are isolated parts, but they are the quick glimpses of light, color, and form that are a daily delight.

Nancy Hathaway has been casting and working with paper a while. These are fascinating. They have a delicate coloring. The paper itself frames the soft yellow of the core. But the core also holds threads of red and yellows.  Nancy writes about them as drawings. They have a nice drawing quality to them.  The surfaces are a fascinating texture.

 

Last Two Days of Show!

The only two days left to see this work are Friday and Saturday!

Bradd’s work is very temporary, and it will all be packed back up and put into the plastic containers. Next time, it’ll be completely different.

But you only have Friday, and Saturday from Noon to Eight to see the work!

End of the Month, and a few days remaining for Connie and Mariah Show

August 28, 2014 § Leave a comment

As we tumble out out summer and into the next season, we would love you to come and see our August show: Connie Pierson’s and Mariah Boyle’s collection of drawings and encaustics.

We would love to have a conversation about the work, and our members.

This is the last show of Mariah’s. We are sad to see her leave. She has moved to Eastern Oregon, and then we aren’t sure what she has planned. We wish her well as she keeps working on, what we expect to be, wonderful drawings and prints.

Here, we are showing a detail of one serigraph in the gallery.

The show ends on Saturday. If you are in town, we’d love to have you see the work.

We would love to have you come and say far well to Mariah Boyle!

We are sorry to see her leave our Project space, but she has been a trouper in commuting from Oregon to sit the gallery this spring and summer. As fall and winter approach, we all know how travel can become a struggle. Mariah will be misses. Her drawings are wonderful.

Come send her off and see what she has dropped off for us to see.
