The Cleve Carney Art Gallery begins its 2017-18 season with an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by the artist Leslie Baum.
Known for her painting-based installations Baum's work covers a diverse range of surfaces and media. The different materials, scale and installations of her work mix with a sampling and remixing of iconic modern painting imagery. Her attention to, and referencing of, the rich history of painting is a devoted celebration of its history. At the same time her agility and willingness to move throughout that history is a joyful casting-off of its limitations.
For Here Comes The Rainbow Baum will be debuting two new bodies of work that use the seven hues of the rainbow as a launching point. Central to the installation will be seven monumental paintings on un-stretched canvas that will be mounted directly on a 45 foot long section of wall in the gallery.
This event is free and open to the public.
