Welcome to the curatorial blog for the Martha Pace Swift Gallery at NTC Promenade in San Diego. This is the place where I can keep you updated on the latest news from the gallery, including openings, special events and news of our visual and performing arts community.
This Friday, July 2nd marks the official closing of a gorgeous show by local artist Ellen Dieter. For the past three months, our Gallery space has been on fire with her powerful canvases, and if you haven't yet made it out to the show, I fully encourage you to do so.
This has been our first fully interactive show,
meaning there is multimedia content posted on line for many of the pieces, consisting of edited artist interviews. You can get more information on the show, and links to the video at : http://www.arts4change.com/special_event.htm
The Ellen Dieter show, 'Brushes with Life' is the kind of work we specialize in showing at the Swift. Work which is made as part of an artists necessary practice, without consideration for either audience or critic. Ellen paints out of necessity, as a visual journal of her own experience. As such, the work is compelling and personal, playful and joyful, full of discovery.
So before we close this fine show I hope you will join us, Friday 5-8 pm.
