Beneath the Surface Show Announcement

Spokane Arts Presents Beneath the Surface!

Dive into the depths of artistic expression with “Beneath the Surface,” an art show that delves beyond the visible to explore the unseen realms of emotion, thought, and imagination.

Step into a world where layers of meaning intertwine, where the surface is merely a gateway to the profound depths beneath. Through a diverse array of mediums including painting, sculpture, mixed media, and digital art, this exhibition invites you to embark on a journey of discovery, peeling back the layers of perception to reveal the hidden truths that lie beneath.

Explore the vibrant worlds of Jan Schnurr and Elyse Hochstadt in this captivating art exhibition. Jan’s mixed-media paintings beckon viewers into a realm of childlike spontaneity and uninhibited expression. With a playful approach, Jan intricately weaves together various patterns and colors from found papers, layering, cutting, and tearing them before adding paint. Each piece evolves organically, embracing the unpredictable journey of creation.

In contrast, Elyse’s mixed media felt and wool sculptures invite contemplation on community and healing. Through her art, she illuminates the transformative power of collective creativity. Within the Chase Gallery’s space, Elyse fosters a sense of belonging and shared purpose, encouraging viewers to engage in decision-making processes that shape our collective future. Join us as we immerse ourselves in the intersection of art, community, and possibility.

From abstract compositions that challenge the mind to works that evoke visceral reactions, each piece in “Beneath the Surface” serves as a portal to introspection and revelation. Explore the complexities of human experience, the mysteries of the natural world, and the nuances of the psyche as you traverse the galleries, encountering works that provoke, inspire, and resonate on a profound level.

As you immerse yourself in the depths of this artistic exploration, prepare to confront the shadows, embrace the mysteries, and uncover the beauty that lies hidden beneath the surface.
