Charles E. Burchfield, Resounding Roar
May 4, 2018 - July 29, 2018
The sounds of nature, industry and humanity would inspire Burchfield throughout his career. Early works depict the sound of crickets as they chirp away in the bushes around his childhood home. The resounding roar of a passing train or the delicate call of a bobolink could be imputes for a series of works lasting decades. Later works are inspired by his favorite composers Ludwig van Beethoven and Jean Sibelius. Charles E. Burchfield: A Resounding Roar presents the artist's love and appreciation of different sounds and the works he made in response to them. Click here to learn more about the artist.

Mai has been painting on metal, first aluminum and now stainless steel, for almost twenty years. By exposing areas of the raw metal substrate, a unique juxtaposition results between the industrial material and her nature-based subject matter. Her work will be an exploration of our evolving and often tenuous union with nature as well as our inherent desire to connect with it. Click here to learn more about the artist.
