Community Gallery

The Pantry: Still Lifes of Fruit and Vegetables- a solo show by Susan Donahue

Community Gallery • Still Life with Apples in a Marcia Ives Bowl• Susan Donahue

Still Life with Apples in a Marcia Ives Bowl• Susan Donahue

Susan Donahue’s fifteen still lifes of fruit and vegetables project intimacy and comfort. Yet, there is no denying that the still life genre engages questions about mortality and the transience of beauty in our lives. Why give that much attention to an onion or a cabbage? What is art for? For Donahue, a still life painting elevates simple things to ask but not fully answer these questions. The series amplifies its sense of localized, momentary care by incorporating works by Methow Valley potters Marcia Ives, Tamera Abaté, and Almquist Old Time Pottery, as well as presenting a frame created by woodworker Don McIvor.
