Over 200 gallery visitors, which included students, staff, faculty and members of the local community enjoyed viewing visiting artist Christopher Burch’s solo art exhibition, Maroon Melodies: Soliloquies of a Slick Sound, at the reception for the artist on Thursday, February 28, 2019. The reception provided visitors the opportunity to meet and talk with the artist and find out more about his artistic practice (including how he painted two temporary full-wall murals in the gallery). The exhibition features the onsite wall murals, plus many artworks in other mediums that explore and re-invent mythology, folklore and history. Through storytelling, drawing, painting, sculpture and installation, Burch’s works find their greatest strength in his eloquent, thoughtful manner of interpreting and investigating some of humanity’s most disquieting realities.
Visitors to the gallery love this show, and everyone wants to know how the artist painted the two murals directly onto the walls of the gallery.
If you haven’t yet seen it, be sure to not to miss this powerful art exhibition!
Maroon Melodies: Soliloquies of a Slick Sound will be on view in the Art Gallery through March 15. This exhibition has been made possible by a generous donation from the Associated Students of Skyline College. The Skyline College Art gallery is open Mondays through Fridays, and is located on the ground floor of Building 1.
