On view through Saturday, June 4th

Join us for the closing reception of Megan Finch’s Going-To-The-Sun Road on Saturday, June 4, from 12-5 PM. We will have wine as well as charcuterie to celebrate!

Across new multimedia works, including collaged and quilted pieces, Megan Finch recounts the majestic landscapes of her Pacific Northwest upbringing. Working with religious reverence and a calloused hand, she brings together materials that call up hearthfronts, homesteads, and long stretches between towns to create objects that hum and rumble with sensibility. Refracted by memory, fogged over with nostalgia, these places are also unblemished by occupants; the viewer experiences them awestruck and alone.

Like the land itself, Finch’s creations emerge as sometimes rough, sometimes elegant, sometimes mundane, and sometimes magnificent. The surfaces are battered, the fabrics worn, the patterns energetic. The rock is dirty on one side and glittering on the other. The spectacular complexity of a stunning vista is rubbed down to reveal the wallpaper in your great-grandmother’s bathroom. This work reaches out towards transcendence and finds something to touch.
