Opening Reception: American Studies
Friday, September 8 // CCA Cinematheque Gallery // 5-7pm // Free
Santa Fe-based artist Richard Sober intentionally remained on the edges of the art world for almost fifty years, quietly painting and examining the remarkable details in unremarkable places. The thirty-two paintings in this exhibition, American Studies, are just that, selected studies of what Sober observed while passing through space, mostly on foot. The scenes are both familiar and surprising, traveling from the East Coast to South Dakota, depicting details that most pass by without notice.
"There are houses and landscapes prohibited to us, places that can never fully be entered, though one never stops wondering who or what is inside.” – Richard Sober
