Forces in Motion: Gordon Chase '66
June 23-August 21, 2020
September 8-October 3, 2020

From the mythic, to the military, and through the frequent intensity of simply being human, our passions define our navigation through this world.  Politics and social justice – whose politics and what actions signify justice – are at the heart of Gordon Chase’s artful quest. He successfully marries gesture and design to ask big questions in dynamic ways, whether through powerful black-and-white drawings or intensely colorful gestural paintings; piercingly angular sculpture or circular ‘witness wheels.’  This lifetime artist and educator employs art with a social conscience to test our assumptions about how we move through this world.
