At the start of the pandemic, when Washington state got its stay-at-home orders, Spokane artist Tracy Poindexter-Canton gave herself a challenge — she decided to create a mixed-media work every day for 30 days, only allowing 15 minutes to gather materials and an hour to create the piece. The results are impressive and now make up half of a two-part show of Poindexter-Canton’s work currently on display at the Liberty Gallery in downtown Spokane. The other half is To Shalimar: Art Inspired by Toni Morrison’s Literature, in which the artist created a series of stunning images tied to the author’s work. Visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour with signs that explain the connection between Morrison’s words and Poindexter-Canton’s pieces.
