Art on Main

Art on Main for web

A program of the City of Auburn, Art on Main is a Auburn's newest art exhibition space. Artists are selected through an annual application process to install 3-dimensional or multi-media art installations in a public window-front exhibition space in downtown Auburn. The program offers a $1,000 artist stipend to support the creation of new work and site-specific projects, or the installation of existing work.

Liz Tranlinks to external site - March 28 - May 14
Liz Tran’s dynamic mixed media work is inspired by subjects such as “dream imagery, imagined landscapes, geodes, outer space and The Big Bang.” Her colorful and sculptural installations evoke ideas of undiscovered universes and fantastical forms which allow vivid hues and splatters of paint to activate space.

Christopher Hartshornelinks to external site - May 23 - July 31
Chaos and turbulence of graphic woodcut lines sprawl across the paper in Hartshorne's dynamic relief prints. He seeks to "immerse the viewer in a chaotic, nebulous landscape, bombarded by webs of accumulating lines."

Elizabeth Gahanlinks to external site - August 12 - October 22
Elizabeth Gahan's work is colorful, bold, and interacts directly with the architecture of the installation site, as if it were an organic growth overtaking a space with vivid geometric forms. Her work "explores the ways in which we construct our surroundings that impact our daily experiences."

Savina Masonlinks to external site - November 3 - January 1
Interests in order, pattern, and materiality are at the heart of the mixed-media work by Savina Mason. Conception of landform is a recurring theme and the light and colors of the Pacific Northwest are visible in her innovative installations.
