DESCRIPTION

Kevin Box casts bronze so delicate it looks like paper. Melissa Chandon collects memories of a bygone America in her vivid, high-gloss “abstract realist” paintings. We're bringing these two innovative artists together for a show entitled, “Land, Air and See in 2-D and 3-D.” The show begins with an opening night reception with the artists on Friday evening, June 12th.

Paper is receptive. Fresh and open, it willingly accepts our sketched and written ideas. For Kevin Box, paper itself becomes the revealer of concepts which he discovers by folding and unfolding, creasing and crimping, then casting into bronze. Kevin’s work and inspiration is both playful and profound. His sculptures vary in scale from maquette to monumental.

Melissa Chandon paints the understated, common objects of the 20th century in technicolor. Her vision is to document the optimism and ingenuity of America from the 30’s to the 60’s. The simplified forms and fresh palette in her paintings evoke a familiar nostalgia. Viewing her work, one can imagine taking a road trip through the past, with Chandon as the driver, exploring the backroads of our memories.

Our natural adobe walls provide a lovely contrasting backdrop to Chandon’s bright paintings. Box’s sculptures will be on display both inside and outside in our lush sculpture garden.

We're pleased to share the work of these two talented artists with you.
