Our exhibit at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture is coming to a close. This weekend is the last weekend and Saturday is a FREE day provided by STCU. It’s a great time to go and see some work we have up in the space.

At the top of this post is a piece by Lance Sinnema. These are paintings he reworks, and wraps using text as a comment on seeing.


This is a single image from Jeff Huston’s piece, a video about the idea of work. Layers of video are projected on a collection of core footings, like the foundation of a porch.

We also have Fresh  in our space. This is an exhibit of new faculty from around the area. Some of them have been members of our gallery. We are delighted to have their work in our space.

We are always free and open to the public. Come by this week and take a look at what is up in the gallery. Don’t forget Hannah Koeske’s collection of paintings and drawings in our small space. She has a set of her cereal  box drawings on the white wall, and her paintings reveal interesting dialogs.

We wold like you to remember, Saranac has two venues for this month. We are at the MAC, Browne’s Addition. We have a show there of 16 of out members showing work. The works are diverse, because we are also a diverse collection of artists. We approach working in different ways, and through different materials. It shows in the show at the MAC. The MAC is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. There is an admission charged. They will be closed on Labor Day. The show closes on the 20th of September.


We also have a show of FRESH in the gallery at the east end of Main Avenue by Division.

Fresh is a show of new-ish faculty in the area. We are open from noon to eight today. We don’t charge an entry to come see the work. You are also welcome to come look as you go the the Magic Lantern Theater of the Saranac Public House across the hall from us. 

Hannah Koeske has some wonderful drawings in the gallery. The drawings have a light, delicate quality to them. Some narrative is wove into the images. They have a haunting beauty we are not sure how to put a name to describe the images.

We have our work at the MAC until the end of September.

We would love to have you take a look at it. We feel the collection is strong and diverse.

Many of the artists involved have been in exhibits all around the world, and here we have a beautiful, open installation of works.

A nice conversation around space and investigating ideas.
