We are pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by Pacific Northwest artist Selene Santucci. Please join us for the Opening Reception on Thursday, February 5th from 6-8 pm.

Selene Santucci is an intuitive painter who relies on a process that is visually directed and leads to the finished piece. "I have no idea of the painting I am about to start, and until the very last moment of conviction, have no certainty that it will remain in the form that is in front of me. Through a very long series of moves, i.e. changes, cancellations, and additions, an idea unfolds." Left: Singing and Dancing, 36 x 36 inches, oil on canvas Santucci describes her work as a mingling of fabrication and form, and driven by a desire to create meaning and beauty with paint. "It is informed and nourished by listening to many hours of National Public Radio, all forms of news and politics, reading, movies, travel, music, and of course, looking at art. I try to stay as well informed and as present in the world as I possibly can. This is what churns the engine of my imagination." Santucci has shown her work in over 130 exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. From 1986 to 1998, she taught at WSU as an adjunct faculty member in the art department. Born in Seattle, she currently calls the Palouse her home.
