WE ARE PLEASED TO INCLUDE ABSTRACT ACRLYICS BY ARTIST CHUCK HARMON IN OUR UPCOMING FIRST FRIDAY FLOOTIE AT THE LIBERTY ARTIST RECEPTION ON OCTOBER 7TH. STOP BY AND SEE CHUCK’S WORK ON THE 2ND FLOOR PLUS THAT OF OVER 20 OTHER FLOOTIE ARTISTS.
Chuck took a few minutes to tell us about her work and background, learn more about her in the brief interview below:
Describe your work in 100 words
I like to blend acrylic colors, and then enhance what appears with mediums. Recently I’ve begun to cover my acrylic abstracts with resin. The folks that stopped by the Spokane Studio Art Tour in September saw some examples of that work. When I’m not doing abstracts, I like to do landscapes. Of course, sometimes an abstract will become a landscape.
What’s your creative background?
My creative background has to do with singing, and writing (mostly news and ad copy, during a 9 year broadcasting career) After a 30 year career in financial services (writing financial plans), I retired in 2008 and started painting. I learned from my wife Alice,and other well-known artists around Spokane.
Do you have a favorite local artist that inspires you?
There have been many local inspirations, so I won’t mention one and leave out another. I won’t be at the opening of this show, because I’ll be in Denver spending some time at the Clyfford Still Museum (look him up – he’s got Spokane connections). His work inspires me.
What memorable responses have you had to your work?
Responses – I was hanging a show at Craftsman Cellars in Kendall Yards, and three women were watching. One of my pieces didn’t have a title. I asked them to be my “think tank” and come up with something. They really got into it, and after about 20 suggestions, my little 8×8 became “Sunburst.”
