The art exhibition “Resonant Fields” opens with a free reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 1, at Mars Cafe, 2318 University Ave. The exhibit, featuring five artists, is the second annual production of the roving gallery #DMAFcurated, a collaboration between Silent Rivers Design+ Build and the Des Moines Arts Festival. The artwork will remain at the cafe until June 20, when it will move to Western Gateway Park as part of the Arts Festival. The event can be found on Facebook here, where RSVPs for the reception are requested.
“Curation of the art we select for our homes provides a deeper narrative about why we purchase and collect, generating a collective story about the artwork and our relationship with it,” says Chaden Halfhill, artist, sculptor and founder of Silent Rivers. The gallery will include work by Gaston Carrio, Amee Ellis, Joseph Graci, Leslie Anne Guinan and Robert Matthews.
