Daily: Curator’s Pick

The fourth installment of our Curator’s pick post – basically, a “best of” or “favorite” pick by a local curator or art dealer from the works currently on view at their own institution – comes to your from Sandy Snead. Sandy is co-owner of Lark & Key Gallery, along with her husband, artist Duy Huynh. She runs the day-to-day operations of the gallery, using her skills in graphic design, jewelry making, visual display, and textiles. Occasionally, she even gets to sit at the jeweler’s bench.

Sandy’s pick is Impression, an oil painting (below) by Susan Hall, guest artist in Lark & Key’s current exhibition, Wild Life. Sandy wanted to highlight this work because she in interested in the artist’s “use of fabric textures to add visual interest and depth to her monochromatic oil paintings. Her subjects are veiled or surrounded by intricate patterns and her technique yields tranquil, introspective paintings with a timeless quality.”

Wild Life, which features a cast of creatures by five artists (Hall, Elizabeth Foster, Duy Huynh, Vicki Sawyer, and Mary Alayne Thomas), explores the wonder and whimsy of the natural word. The exhibition is on view Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11am-5pm, through July 30.
