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,

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.

First Friday @ 5-9pm:
Fresh and 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.
