Andrew Abbott

Suann Childers

June 1 – July 27

opening reception Friday, June 1 6 – 9 p.m.

Andrew Abbott (Brooklyn, NY) lets it be known: I don’t live between two worlds because worlds aren’t like sheets. I live in world soup. In that soup are all our personal worlds, and Abbott paints that soup. Abbott received his BA in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina, was born in Nova Scotia, grew up in North Carolina, served in the U.S. Army as a medic, and has lived in Georgia, Maine, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

Suann Childers (Lexington, KY) paints an extended allegory of a joyous, free but imperiled place called Clown Island, which is a little of New York City and other places Childer lived before returning to Lexington. Childers also paints the Four Horsemen, in ways that predate but vibrate with the contemporary struggles of the Water Keepers at Standing Rock. Childers has an MFA from Washington University in the Saint Louis School of Art, and an MA from the Rhode Island School of Design.
