Karin Clarke Gallery, located at 760 Willamette Street, is proud to present a special spotlight show titled “Resolutions” by Salem painter, Nancy Lindburg. This exhibit will be on view from May 3 through May 27, with a reception for the artist on May 5, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. during the First Friday Art Walk.
“The term ‘Resolutions’ has many meanings, of course, but in music it refers to ending the harmonic sequence at the tonic, or ‘home,’” says Lindburg. “I think of my lifetime of painting and touching on ideas that have been and are important to me. It’s a going back and forth with the language of art and hopefully resolving the inevitable problems that slow one down - and ending up ‘home.’”
Lindburg is best known for her work that depicts large color-field paintings, and her vibrant use of oil paints. This exhibit offers a chance to accept what is unfinished in life, and to be content with the outcome. “If you are 83, you are still looking ahead, but you are contemplating the past,” says Lindburg.
Lindburg received her B.A. in Art History and studio art from Mills college, Oakland, California and her M.F.A in painting and sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. In addition to her career as an artist, Lindburg served as the Director of the Salem Art Association from 1973 to 1978 and Artist Services Coordinator for the Oregon Arts Commission from 1978 to 1991.
My work is about ideas and resolving the problems that are generated by them. It is about everything I care about - whether it be the power of color, the beauty of surfaces, the immediacy of drawing, the vibrancy of space, light, energy, nature, silence, hope. It is about
order under appearances....and about joy and loss.
