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,

Scorched Earth opens at the Saranac Art Projects in Spokane, Washington. This exhibition features collaborative works made by twin sisters, Julie and Kristen Gautier-Downes. The works exhibited are a selection of digital composites and installations which seek to make sense of the sisters’ shared trauma.

Border Lines opens Tonight

Rachel Smith, Jenny Hyde, Lisa Nappa, Juventino Aranda

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.

First Friday @ 5-9pm:

Fresh and Hannah Koeske

Hannah Koeske

We have an opening reception this evening! First of the fall. We are looking forward to exhibiting a new collection of drawings by Hannah Koeske. Hannah has some very nice large drawings in the gallery for this evening. We would love to have you come and take a look.

FRESH is an invitational of the new artists at our various area universities. This is a university town. We have five colleges represented: Gonzaga, EWU, NIC, SFCC and Whitworth. Each has a new member or three. Some might not seem new, but they have new positions within their departments and are more secure than before. Others are returning to fill positions opened in the last year.

Come and see the work. Say hello to us and visit a bit. There is music downtown, and it’s a busy weekend.

We’d love to see you this evening.

Laboratory residence: Sabrina Barrios, Yang Wang, Zhenzhen Qi and Alan Chatham

New work; A New Project;

We would like to say how thrilled we are to have Jo as one of our members. We are looking forward to the new work in the space.

We are also thrilled with the exhibit of work from the residence from Laboratory. This project has been around for short time. We have seen some of the work a couple of weeks ago, at the Laboratory space, and in the space by the Bartlett. We are delighted to have the work in the gallery. It’s going to be vary interesting.
