Gallery Talk & Closing Reception – Saturday, September 10th 2022 at 2pm

826 Canyon Road, Santa Fe NM

Everyone is warmly invited to a walk-through and gallery talk with artists, Gillian Brown and Cherie Sampson about their two-person show, The Quality of Being Fleeting, at Currents Gallery 826, Santa Fe. In introducing their work, they will discuss their individual interests as well as their commonalities that brought them to develop the exhibition together.  The artists mutually explore the junctions between the substantial and the fleeting, stillness and movement, form and dissolution. These are expressed through shared Eastern philosophical and artistic underpinnings, visual language and approaches to video art and soundscape. Brown’s works featured in the exhibition are a series thematically informed by creation myths from around the world and scientific work on how existence comes into being and her sense of how something comes out of nothing in our consciousness. Sampson’s recent work depicts an experience with hereditary breast cancer exploring topics of science, genetics and integrative healing from a patient’s perspective of modern medicine.
