closing reception: Friday, January 4, 6 – 9 pm at Garner Narrative
Garner Narrative welcomes Laurie Fader for her first solo show with the gallery, Odysseys. Fader paints through momentous political and personal territory with a Vestal Virgin as a guide.
For centuries, artists have looked to ancient forms and motifs to develop their skills, and more than a few have brought such iconography into their own contemporary work, with all of the associations of the past tagging along for the ride. So what Laurie Fader has been up to may not be surprising on an academic level, yet her choice of motif and the relationships she builds to current events feels unique. – Keith Waits, for Artebella
