New Work by Samantha French

Opening Reception:

Thursday, February 14th, 6-9pm


Show Runs:

February 14 - March 29, 2008

Samantha French’s paintings and mixed media drawings reflect a connection to the past and her own memories of life in Minnesota. Her new series focusing on bathers is her link to home and the continual search for the feeling of “sun on your face, warm summer days at the lake.” Shades of blue dominate her work as gestural figures in swimming attire represent memories of her past and a romanticized time far before hers with wool suits, dark eyeliner and bob haircuts.

French is a Minnesota native now living and working in New York. She graduated from MCAD with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2005. In 2006 she received an individual artist grant from the Five Wings Arts Council. This will be her first solo gallery exhibition in Minneapolis.
