With the new year comes the newest local art exhibition to Spokane’s Chase Gallery, the space overseen by Spokane Arts. The three-month showcase titled Connectivity | Matters features work by five local artists that seeks to explore how we connect with and relate to the world. Participating artists Heidi Farr, Jake Miller, Naoko Morisawa, Rachel Smith and Patrick Sullivan explore their own interpretations of this multi-faceted query through a variety of materials that present connections of people to place, and vice versa. “Connection, for me, has physical properties, and as such it can’t vanish; only change forms…” says contributing artist Heidi Farr. Come out and ponder your own connectivity narrative as you view the exhibit’s collage and mixed media works, in which each of the artists present unique, individual expressions of connections that matter to them.
Tue, Jan. 2 through Thu, March 29; open Mon-Fri from 8 am-5 pm; reception March 2 from 5-8 pm • Free • Chase Gallery • 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. • spokanearts.org
