Event Details

JOIN US FOR OUR JANUARY GROUP SHOW, ‘LISTENING FOR AN ECHO: SOMETHING ABOUT FARMING’ BY LOCAL ARTISTS PAM DEUTSCHMAN, ABIGAIL EVANS, KAREN MOBLEY, AND MEGAN PERKINS.

This show explores the profound intricacies of farming – encapsulating its struggles, beauty, mortality, and ambiguity within a nuanced artistic narrative. Blending documentary realism with aesthetic contemplation, four regional artists create a visual dialogue that is both aspirational and memorial, personal and universal.

Pam Deutschman: In a documentary quilt of farm life, using photography, sewing, and quilting, Deutschman weaves a narrative that captures the magic, loss, solitude, and toil on a small family farm, expressing awe at the simple beauty and tragedy of life cycles.

Abbie Evans: Through digital photography, Evans explores farmland in the Palouse, WA, and southern ID, delving into the tension between idealism and realism, nature and human, growth and decay, capturing the grittier reality and cycles of the American farm.

Megan Perkins: Creating impressionist yet realistic paintings, Perkins plans to delve into the mythological and legendary aspects of the Spokane landscape, using a mix of watercolor, gouache, pastel, ink, pencils, charcoal, and possibly oil to convey the poetics of the Inland Northwest.

Karen Mobley: Using her painterly style with thick and thin paint on board, Mobley creates new oil paintings inspired by regional landscapes in Lincoln and Whitman Counties, aiming for representational yet abstract works evoking the wild spaces and agricultural landscapes of her younger years.

First Friday Opening: January 5th, 5pm – 8pm
