FERN CANYON

Paintings by Claire Sherman

March 3 - May 21, 2017
3rd Floor Gallery
Artist Talk: March 18th, 3pm
 
Fern Canyon  features a selection of drawings and paintings by artist Claire Sherman, including the recent KMAC acquisition Tree, 2016.  The exhibition introduces Sherman’s innovative approach to a traditional genre, displaying her patent perspectives on contemporary landscape painting. Riotous representations of nature blur into abstraction as moss covered tree limbs, tangled branches, and rock-strewn caves combine with Sherman’s urgent brushstrokes and bold warps of color, scale and environmental perception.
