Event Description:

WSU's Art and Design Department will host Swell: Paintings by Beau Carey from Monday, Aug. 21 through Wednesday, Sept. 13 in Watkins Gallery, Watkins Hall.  

Beau Carey will present a series of oil paintings that contribute to the rich dialogue of plein air painting in the Winona region. Carey's landscapes address notions of liminality and the man-altered landscape. The works Carey will show at the Winona State's Watkins Gallery were conceived during a residency at Rabbit Island, a remote 91 acre forested island in Lake Superior.

Carey is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He earned his Masters of Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico in 2010. He has exhibited extensively throughout the United States, including at UBS gallery in New York, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art in Boulder, CO and 516 Arts in Albuquerque, NM. Carey is represented by Goodwin Fine Art in Denver, CO.

This exhibit will also feature an artist talk with Carey at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30 in Stark Hall auditorium, room 103. A Reception will follow the artist talk in the Watkins Gallery from 5-6 p.m.

The Watkins Gallery is located in Watkins Hall on the campus of Winona State University. The gallery hosts six exhibitions by visiting artists each year along with six exhibitions of work by current WSU students. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and open late on Wednesdays until 8 p.m.

This exhibition is generously supported by Winona State University and by a grant from the Winona State University Foundation.
