September 7, 2018 - Opening Reception: WhiteWashing

WhiteWashing new works by Sheila Crider

September 7 - October 13, 2018 Opening Reception, September 7, 6-9 pm

Sheila Crider's new work explores the nation's historic relationship with people of color through contemporary abstraction. Her evocative--and precisely executed--monoprints, pulp paintings, and installation assemblages are thoughtful studies of repetitive action, subtle relief, and minimal color.

"Whitewashing used to refer to a thin veneer of lime mixed in water that was applied to fences in summer. It is now commonly used to mean obscuring the truth… This thought came as I poured pulp on the fencing and realized how that act could be symbolic of what was going on in the country today, given the leadership and resurgence in violence towards minorities and how it has been covered up until now with little consequences, and like the rusty parts of the fence, still visible just below the surface." - Sheila Crider
