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,

Border Lines opens Tonight
We have a reception this evening from 5-9.
Come and see the new pieces by Lisa and Jenny.
They have asked Rachel and Juventino to bring works up from Walla Walla.
This exhibition explores the fragility within the concepts we fabricate to construct our realities. Juventino Aranda’s sculptures and drawings substantiate the fickleness of social and political divisions. Rachel Smith’s works on paper remind us how memories provide a questionable framework of experiences. Lisa Nappa’s works in clay and photo collage evoke the subtleties of perception. Jenny Hyde’s prints question the lines between physical and digital reality. Though varied in media, the artists employ meticulousness to their process, the work shares attention to detail and obsessive execution of one’s craft.

Laboratory and Saranac Art Projects are happy to present “Float:” A collection of art work that aims to include the viewer into the process of creating and seeks ways to create a shift in how reality is perceived (**the description can be edited/changed**) by Swedish artist duo Anna Sörenson and Daniel Rydh.
Sharing a background in painting and conceptual art, the artist duo Rydh /Sörenson have a collective attitude to visual aesthetics and activating the art audience in public spaces. Daniel studied fine art at Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht in The Netherlands and pedagogy at Umeå University in Sweden. Anna received her BFA from Umeå Art Academy and MFA from Pratt Institute, New York supported by her Fulbright Scholarship. In 2014 she graduated from a.pass, a yearlong post-master program in performance art in Brussels, Belgium.
Both artists are living in Spokane as part of the Laboratory residency program and will be here through the month of April. Come meet them and see their work at the Saranac Art Projects Gallery.

We return with our Small Works Sale for the month of December.
We have a number of smaller works our members have made we think of as approachable objects to enable art to be in your hands and lives.
We know art is everywhere. We also think a small bit of something can bring forth a memory of time, an experience, or a conversation.
We will have images in the coming days and weeks.
Our reception is Friday from 4 to 9.
Come and visit.
