In-Creed-ible in April

Posted in: blog

Join us for an In-Creed-ible reception this Thursday, April 21, 5-9 pm.
Exhibition dates: April 20-May 15.

We found Artist Lisa Creed by a fabulous moment of chance.
The re-model of the new Mavi Contemporary Art wasn’t even complete, when Elizabeth Ashe did an artist search and found Lisa Creed’s work. Her portfolio was the first and our favorite one of the evening. What first captured us was Creed’s spirited method of blending sky and land. Her paintings organic flights flare with saffron in an energy we have never seen before. Creed joined as a Gallery Artist soon thereafter.
We are thrilled to present her first exhibition at Mavi Contemporary Art. Please join us for this “In-Creed-ible” Show, welcoming Lisa Creed to the Northwest!

Creed’s work has recently been presented by Duke University with a 600-piece show. Her history includes 35 major exhibitions, in addition to other venues too numerous to mention.

“I seek both minimalism and complexity. Busy areas contrast with quiet spots. Shades of white initially seem the same and then, on closer view, are distinctly different. I want the viewer to be drawn in and to visually excavate these paintings. I want to engage the viewer to see the whole work then deconstruct it to individual parts and then to stand back and see the whole work once again.”
~ Lisa Creed

Hung in the Rear Gallery are new works by William Quinn, Alexis St. John, Christopher Mathie and Michael Croman.
