Cliff Gallery presents Keer Tanchak: "Buttons/Crowns" opening reception
The Cliff Gallery of Mountain View College will present “Buttons/Crowns” featuring works by artist Keer Tanchak.
Tanchak’s paintings draw primarily from art historical sources and have evolved out of concern for the history of framing and architecture. Motifs in her latest work are sourced from photos of actresses, contemporary sculpture, historic painted portraits, Tibetan funeral crowns and Scandinavian paper cutouts. Tanchak is interested in the endless connotations of buttons and crowns in relation to personal adornment, political power, contemporary technology, and gender issues in the cultural sphere.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 2.
