2007 Cannon Invitational

Nov. 4 - Dec. 30, 2007

painting of Barbie standing ove baby in cribThe William D. Cannon Art Gallery presented the "2007 Cannon Invitational," an exhibition that featured the work of David Adey, Gerrit Greve, Lee Puffer and Jen Trute. These four artists were selected from the 33 artists featured in the "2007 Juried Biennial" exhibition by the gallery’s Curator of Exhibitions, Karen McGuire. While each artist in the "Juried Biennial" only presented one or two works, the Invitational provided an opportunity to showcase a select few of the Biennial artists and present their work in greater depth. This lively exhibition, a unique amalgamation of the work of four San Diego County artists, crossed over into various disciplines and areas of interest. All four artists are known for their remarkable body of work in mixed-media, painting, ceramics and sculpture.

Carlsbad artist Jen Trute takes us to real and imaginary places in enchanting and mysterious paintings with environmental themes. Each painting tells a story, often unsettling. But Trute’s deft handling of paint and the allure of her imagery seduce with delight before the viewer perceives that her narratives have deeper, somber implications.

Cardiff painter Gerrit Greve creates his paintings with nature-oriented materials, as part of a metaphorical journey. Greve lays down layers of iron oxide, silica and quartz, powdered mica and pigment on canvas to forms brilliant abstractions. One Greve canvas was recently featured in the newly published book, "1001 Paintings (You Must See Before You Die)."

Imperial Beach artist David Adey uses notably unorthodox materials in his conceptual sculptures and two-dimensional works. With a wry sensibility, Adey appropriates familiar objects and straddles the boundary between the practical and the imaginary, using materials such as neon, dry-wall screws and industrial materials.

San Diego artist Lee Puffer confronts the experiences of motherhood and aging in a society that values youth and beauty above all else in her whimsical ceramic sculptures. Drawing inspiration from popular culture, clichéd stereotypes and her own experiences, Puffer’s works are simultaneously fun and thought-provoking.
