JULY 1 - SEPTEMBER 25 // KENNETH SUSYNSKI, AMANDA CALDWELL & SEIKO A. PURDUE
The summer exhibit at the Chase Gallery is open Monday, July 1 through Wednesday, September 25. Featuring three regional artists each working in their own distinct styles and in a range of mediums, the work all shares an evocative, dream-like quality. Fiber artist Seiko A. Purdue installed her fiber piece, Berry Grove, in the Chase, stringing the lightweight fabric structures from the ceiling slats above. The installation is surrounded by the large oil paintings by Seattle-based artist Kenneth Susynski and the paintings and drawings of Spokane artist Amanda Caldwell. All three artists will be at the gallery for the September First Friday reception, on Friday, September 6, from 4 to 7 p.m. as well as for a lunch-hour Artist Talk that day, from noon to 1 p.m.
Kenneth Susynski presents a unique, hybrid style of figurative expressionism blended with the abstract in narrative compositions that stress an interpretation of beauty, with a hint of wit, exploring combinations of historical and contemporary cultural themes.
