Join us for our February Gallery Show, Curse of the Nostalgic Amnesiac, featuring Wenatchee artist, Chad Yenney.

Through surrealistic compositions made from vintage American advertisements, Yenney uses collage to explore social and environmental issues while investigating the paradox of the USA’s idyllic narrative and an unfiltered history.

Artist Statement:

My work deals with social and environmental issues that I package in surreal or abstracted veils in an attempt to lure the viewer into a world worth exploring. Whether my pieces are simple or complex, I try to create narratives that have a depth to them, some mystery, excitement, and beauty. I feel it’s possible to combine activism in a cloak of escapism to achieve an experience that can suggest one emotion while hinting to another. As humanity marches forward, I’m inspired to dive into the past to remind us where we’ve been, to help guide us into the future.

Ticket Cost: Free event; no ticket required.
