KETCHUM — The Sun Valley Center for the Arts will celebrate the opening of its new visual arts exhibition, titled “Burchfield’s Influence: Hayley Barker, Anna Fidler, Katy Stone” from 5 to 7 p.m. June 29 at the center, 191 Fifth St. E., Ketchum.
Artists Fidler and Stone will speak at 6 p.m. The celebration will include refreshments and is free to the community.
“Burchfield’s Influence” presents the work of 20th-century artist Charles E. Burchfield, 1893–1967, in conjunction with three contemporary artists who count Burchfield among their most important influences.
Barker, Fidler and Stone draw inspiration from Burchfield’s belief in a spiritualized natural world, which he translated into landscape paintings.
The exhibition features a selection of Burchfield’s drawings and watercolor paintings, as well as wallpaper made according to his design; Barker’s paintings inspired by pilgrimage sites, divine experiences and landscape; Fidler’s works on paper, including new work made during a residency at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts in Hailey; and a site-specific installation by Katy Stone.
