Jeremy Kendall | The Things We Carry
06.19.20 - 10.10.20
ARTIST'S RECEPTION: Friday, October 9 | 5-7pm
This upcoming exhibition of recent paintings by Jeremy Kendall depicts the artist's translation of "presence, both in nature and inner-personally". Jeremy's process of painting is very instinctual. He meditates on a person or an event and then begins drawing and painting very intuitively, reflecting on the memory of that person or what took place. An idea that Jeremy is constantly returning to is that people are best depicted as processes, not as completed forms. "I think we are more like spirits that inhabit bodies as opposed to physical realities that are tangible and do things".
Jeremy is a lifelong resident of South Dakota. He earned a photography degree from Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming and since graduating in 1999, his art career has focused primarily on drawing and painting. Jeremy also happens to be a certified professional mental health counselor. Working as a therapist seems to have enhanced this very personal approach to Jeremy's form of memory-based portraiture and landscapes.
Permanent Collection Exhibition
Date | 06.19.20 - 10.10.20
Each year, the Rapid City Arts Council selects certain pieces from it's permanent collection to showcase in an exhibition. This year's exhibition will focus on those newest pieces that have been generously donated or purchased by RCAC through specified grant money. The RCAC strives to grow and maintain a collection whose primary focus is on work by artists who have lived and worked in our region or exhibited in our galleries. Each piece in our collection holds a unique message and style, offering a historical reference to the diversity of art within the present time. This show is a tribute to the talent and creativity that has existed over the years in this region. We have added thirty new artworks to our collection since it was last exhibited and all of these pieces will be on view when we reopen our Adelstein Gallery this summer. Our most recent gift to be included in this year's permanent collection show are three original Paul Goble watercolors that were donated by Nancy Boynton Franklin.
