Kellie Talbot’s America

9/4/2019 through 9/29/2019 | SAM Gallery

Visual Arts & Galleries Downtown

Seattle-based artist Kellie Talbot has established a national reputation for her oil paintings of the neon signs scattered across America. She researches the signs, visits them, and then creates a “portrait” of a time and place where these signs still exist. Talbot says, “My work revolves around the landscape of American artifacts, craftsmanship and history.” The rust and decay in the work aren’t negatives, to the artist, they are both an elegy and a hope.
