"Slow Blue" by Dan O'Kane


Sep 8, 2018 to Oct 13, 2018
12:00 PM until 05:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


In earlier work, O’Kane’s painterly abstractions were shaped by the big-sky and rolling plains of his childhood Nebraska home. In this new series, O’Kane’s composition choices were inspired by three separate trips to the Mediterranean, two to Spain and one to France.

As O’Kane writes, “There's nothing like the colors and textures of the ancient buildings that line the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. The ancient walls, some built by the Romans, are a thousand shades of tan and ochre. Set against this are the ubiquitous storm shutters, Naples Yellow, pink, and foamy green. It's a miasma of color all backlit by the azure blue of the Mediterranean Sea. … In Nice, Antibes, and Menton it's all about the sea. Never have you seen so many shades of blue. It is the color of dreams. Slow and blue.

The artist will be present at the opening reception Saturday, September 8th from 2-5 pm. The opening reception and exhibition runs concurrently with From Voids That Are Never Empty by Dan Bruggeman. Both shows continue through October 13, 2018. For more information please call 612-377-7800 or visit www.grovelandgallery.com.
