Marta Chaffee: The Places We’ve Lived
Sunday, Dec 16, 2018
Armory Center for the Arts is
temporarily closed to the public.
5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Marta Chaffee’s practice draws from California landscapes and the implied freedom of the American west. This exhibition, organized by her daughter Aandrea Stang, showcases paintings and drawings that relate to the artist's numerous road trips—from mundane, local stoplight views, to vistas inspired by the Golden State Freeway or Interstate 395, which she often traveled to visit family in the Eastern Sierras. In her paintings and drawings, Chaffee has mapped locations she often returned to by necessity or choice, organizing both observed and invented views as seen through her windshield.
Armory galleries are open daily from 12:00 to 5:00 PM (closed Tuesdays and holidays). Admission is always free.
