GALLERY WALK: Burchfield’s Influence: Hayley Barker, Anna Fidler, Katy Stone
Friday, July 6, 2018 - 5:00 PM
Start your Gallery Walk at the Center! Locals and visitors alike take in thought-provoking exhibitions, enjoy wine, mingle with friends, and often meet the artists. Burchfield’s Influence presents the work of 20th-century artist Charles E. Burchfield (1893–1967) in conversation with three contemporary artists who count Burchfield among their most important influences: Hayley Barker, Anna Fidler and Katy Stone. Each of the three contemporary artists in the exhibition draws inspiration from Burchfield’s belief in a spiritualized natural world, which he translated into radiant landscape paintings that shimmer with energetic line and pattern. The exhibition features Barker’s paintings inspired by pilgrimage sites, divine experiences and landscape; Fidler’s works on paper, including new work made during a residency at the Sun Valley Center in Hailey, which was the birthplace of the poet Ezra Pound, and a site-specific installation by Katy Stone. Exhibition on view Jun 29–Sep 21, 2018.
