Galen Cheney Exhibition - Look Up

Galen Cheney Exhibition - Look Up Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Edgewater Gallery at Stowe unveils new work by painter Galen Cheney in her solo exhibition Look Up . The exhibition will be on view March 10th through May 4th, with a reception on Friday, March 23rd from 5:30-7:00pm. Her artist talk will begin at 6:00pm.

The essence of the work exhibited in Look Up is process driven abstraction. Experimentation and exploration of materials are central to this body of work. Cheney’s paintings build physically in form - surfaces are built, carved, scraped into. Mixed media layers transform her paintings into a sculptural presence. Says Cheney of her process, “I want my paintings to brim with energy and tension, muscularity, fragility, and heart.” Cheney’s new body of work involves a deepened exploration of work created during a residency in China in 2015. She is now using multi-layered constructions, adding new ways of working liquid acrylic on raw canvas and collage. Cheney’s work is often described as a mixture of urban contemporary, bursting with energies of forces steeped in nature, and always pushing boundaries. Current influences are the work of Angel Otero, Mark Bradford, John Walker, among others.

Cheney, originally from Los Angeles, moved east and spent years working and exhibiting in Vermont. Her professional art practice spans nearly thirty years.The artist now lives and paints in North Adams, Massachusetts, minutes away from the creative energy of Mass MoCA. Cheney received her B.A. from Mount Holyoke College and her M.F.A. from the Maryland Institute, College of Art.

Her work has been shown and collected in Europe, Canada, China, and throughout the US. Recent exhibitions include The Painting Center in New York City, Gray Contemporary in Houston, Greenville Center for Creative Arts in Greenville, SC, and Da Wang Culture Highland in Shenzhen, China. Recognition for her work includes an exhibition award at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, residency fellowships to The Millay Colony, the Vermont Studio Center, and Da Wang Culture Highland in Shenzhen, China, as well as publication in New American Paintings, and a recent nomination for a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Painting.

Cheney will also be teaching a painting workshop “Beauty in Process” at Helen Day Art Center on Saturday, March 10.
