My piece, "She Had Run 20 Feet Before Even Considering a Direction" will be included in Cedar Rapids Museum of Art's Summer exhibit; Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth from June 6 - September 13, 2015. An artist reception will be held on Friday, June 5th from 5-7. Won't you join me?
"This exciting exhibition presents recent work by many of Iowa’s best-known artists. Juried by Kate Kunau, the CRMA’s new Associate Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, each participating artist lives in the state of Iowa. The works in the exhibition were created during the past three years and present a wide range of style and media.
The theme, Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth, allows the artists to address aspects of summer that appeals to the senses in any manner from representational to abstract. The exhibition may pair a work representing the golden light of a summer evening with one evoking the steamy mugginess of a lazy August day. The origin of this exhibition was a desire on the CRMA’s part to continue its successful series of presentations of Iowa artists, integrating group and solo exhibitions of Iowa artists into the exhibition schedule and folding Iowa art into its presentations of American art.
Midwest Summer: Light and Warmth is a testament to the number of talented artists in Iowa and the CRMA plans to continue this success with other themed calls for entries, carrying on the 100+ year tradition of supporting the arts in the local and regional community." ~ from Cedar Rapids Museum of Art's website.
