I arrived at work early this morning, and though the rest of the building was dark, soft light and the sound of Hawaiian guitar music emanated from the small, curtained-off gallery space. Artist Sean Sullivan has been spending all his spare time in there these days, and will continue to all this week as he prepares “LOST ON ROADS”, a new installation of works on paper to open this Saturday.
‘Spare time’ for Sean means when he’s not making some of the best artist paints in the world here at R&F, where he has been a paintmaker for the past three years. So he spent the whole holiday break in the gallery, and has been spending evenings and early mornings making adjustments - all behind a plastic curtain. Through his own unique creative force, Sean has transformed the Gallery at R&F into a kind of sanctuary. The space was so magical this morning that I couldn’t help but share a sneak peek. It will be interesting to see how much it changes between now and the opening, but for now, come on in and poke around with me, (and dig the shiny new finish on the gallery floor, thank you, Darin).
LOST ON ROADS, a new installation by Sean Sullivan, will open this Saturday evening, December 4th, 2010. There will be an opening reception from 5-7 pm, with an informal artist talk at the start of the opening - please join us as we celebrate the work of our talented co-worker. LOST ON ROADS will remain on view through January 22nd, 2011.
