Chicago’s Fine Arts Building Event

Last month I shipped 5 paintings to Chicago! to be hung in the Fine Arts Building studio of Modern Classics Furniture   I’m hoping to make a trip this Fall for an opening, but in the meantime, the lovely Alison who manages the store is hosting an art event for the building’s Second Friday.

If you are in the Chicago area, I’d love for you to experience my paintings in person.

Details. Sharon Kingston New Paintings showing at Modern Classics Furniture Chicago FAB, 410 S Michigan Avenue, Suite 306 Second Friday event July 11th from 5 to 9 pm Gallery open Tues – Sat noon to 4

Here’s one of the paintings showing in Chicago–a bit of a departure from my moody palette, but inspired by Rilke.

from Uncollected Poems… I endlessly marvel at you, blissful ones—at your demeanor, the way you bear your vanishing adornment with timeless purpose. Ah, to understand how to bloom: then would the heart be carried beyond all milder dangers, to be consoled in the great one.

Learning to bloom, 36 x 36 inches, framed in maple floater frame, $1750

    SHARON KINGSTON STUDIO

    203 PROSPECT ST

    Bellingham WA  98225

    please send me note before you stop by

    Sharon Kingston is a Northwest WA oil painter who uses the properties of her medium to create paintings that respond to both the atmosphere of her surroundings and poetry. This method of looking inward and outward and, in the moments of painting, finding her way on the canvas is her approach to creating paintings infused with poetry and the memory of landscape. The atmospheric element of her work is a testament to her desire to create spaces that are undefined, contemplative and allow room to reflect and accept uncertainty. Poetry, by nature open ended, is used both in the conceptualization of the work and as a part of the studio practice. The words of Rainer Rilke have informed Sharon’s work for many years, but she also turns to contemporary poetry when it resonates with her life. She uses layers of transparent color, reveals forms by concealing and unearthing pentimenti and suggests elements of landscape in her process.
