Mark Karnes: Observations in Light
September 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join the directors of CANVAS ArtSpace at the opening Reception for ‘MARK KARNES: Observations in Light’ on view from September 14 – October 10, 2017
In the tradition of Vermeer and Vuillard, Karnes’s intimate artworks focus on quiet scenes composed of everyday spaces, objects, and people, observing the quietest aspects of domestic life. Despite their small size and plain components — bottles, jars, pincushions, postcards — Karnes’s still lives are striking in their treatment of the depiction of light.
A professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore for more than 30 years, Karnes is the recipient of grants from the National Endowmnet for the Arts and the Fulbright program. His work apears in several major collections, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
We look forward to seeing you there!
