Taube Museum features Chase Lock
‘Arcane’ exhibition to run June 6 through July 19
The Taube Museum of Art’s Main Gallery will feature Arcane, a series of expressionistic mixed-media paintings by artist Chase Lock. The exhibition will run June 6 through July 19 with an opening reception on June 6.
Chase Lock, a North Dakota native, takes inspiration for his work from the textual value found in graffiti. He creates large scale paintings primarily in oil, bringing graffiti into the fine art realm balancing the sometimes chaotic nature of graffiti with the finesse of the fine art world.
Many of the pieces that will be shown have been inspired by skid row Los Angeles and the Minot prohibition/history along with personal experiences, according to Lock. He was particularly inspired by the layers of paint that build up in the graffiti laden areas of Los Angeles.
Lock’s work will be displayed in both the upper and lower gallery, creating a fully immersive experience.
An opening reception with the artist will be held June 6, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. In conjunction with the exhibition, a raffle will be held for Lock’s piece “Man and His Horse,” a 60” x 72″ mixed media painting valued at $8,000.
Tickets can be purchased at the Taube for $10. The raffle will conclude July 23 at 6:15 p.m. Raffle tickets will be available at other local businesses. Contact the Taube for more information or if you would like to sell tickets at your establishment.
Local food will be provided by Gravel Products, 10 N Main, Plant Perks, Mandi Carroll Photography and Concrete Mobile, with drinks provided by Atypical Brewery and Gravel Products.
