Super Saturated: Pigment and Pattern

Installation view with Josette Urso, left, and Jackie Tileston, right, in foreground; David Collins in the distance

I'm hoping to get to see Super Saturated: Pigment and Pattern at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, New York later this summer. But just in case I don't, I'm posting a few pictures to tempt you to go if you are anywhere near Auburn, which is near Rochester, in the Finger Lakes region of the state. The show is up now through August 19. These photos are courtesy of the institution, sent to each exhibiting artist by the curator.

Super Saturated is curated by Kenise Barnes, director of the gallery that bears her name in Larchmont, New York. (Note: I'm also in a show there now, Rolling in the Deep, through July 19). Super Saturated includes gallery artists as well as others whose work fits the theme--a theme I might add, which is near and dear to my esthetic heart. Some are artists I've shown with in the past (Mary Judge, Michael Knutson, Laura Watt) or curated into shows of my own (Barbara Ellmann) or all of the above (Laura Moriarty), or that I'm thrilled to be showing with (that would be everyone here) but especially Gabe Brown and Jackie Tileston, whose saturation and pattern I always find retinally thrilling.

I'll post more later this summer if I get to view the exhibition myself, so here let me just show you a few views, with additional images taken from the PDF catalog of the show.

Thanks for this Joanne. I'll be able to see this when I journey to Kingston in August. This show is up a nice long time.
