The Tointon Gallery will feature the work of artist Sarah Nguyen in the exhibit “Shifting the Sun.” The exhibit opens December 15 and will run through January 12.
Nguyen is a mixed media artist, working primarily with paper. Storytelling is central to her hand-cut fiber panels and paintings. The intricate compositions found in her work tie to landscapes and are based on and feature symbolic motifs—flora, fauna, and an ever-changing moon—to elicit childhood memories of myths, fables, and folklore.
Nguyen uses a balance of abstract and representational forms to sever the connection between shape and meaning, connecting the viewer to the gesture of the brush or cut of the knife, so that they become complicit in the art. Myths, reverence and refinement of nature, and observance of daily life are the concepts behind her work.
The exhibition is free and open to the public.
The Tointon Gallery As the only city-run gallery in Greeley, the Tointon Gallery provides community members with up to 12 different exhibits each year – with opportunities to meet and ask questions of the artists. The gallery is located at 651 10th Avenue and is open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s also open during most Union Colony Civic Center performances.
