Details + Materials: Works by Claudine Granthem honored the work of long-time El Dorado County resident Claudine Granthem. With a strong oeuvre that consists of painting, wood and metal sculpture, and drawings, Granthem's work is at once architectural and deeply human. Her use of materials is lavish in its embrace; she doesn't attempt to transform or disguise the properties of the materials themselves, rather she leans into it, exploring their possibilities and boundaries. Each of her works is a world unto itself, concealing and revealing in its own way. Predominantly steeped in abstraction, each work is meant to be felt rather than read as a narrative.
Opening Reception was Thursday, August 24, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
