Allegany Arts Council presents the work of Chris Sloan
CUMBERLAND— Chris Sloan's solo exhibition, Salient Points - Thoughts on the Future of Humanity, will be on display in the Allegany Arts Council's Saville Gallery from November 7-28, 2020. The exhibition, which includes oil paintings, sculpture, and digital art, explores three themes—Extinctions, The Victory of Science, and The Invisible Domain.
Intended to raise awareness of the advanced stage of the extinction crisis, the Extinctions series is comprised of colorful depictions of creatures at risk of disappearing. In the Victory of Science series, Sloan explores various aspects of science and technology, deliberately presenting them as beautiful in an effort to encourage viewers to embrace science. In the Invisible Domain series, Sloan brings the world of molecules, atoms, and subatomic particles to life in a whimsical way, making the unseen world more accessible. “I hope my artwork makes people thing about these themes and wonder if something needs to change,” said Sloan. “Perhaps my work can be a ripple added to other ripples that combined will lead to a wave of change.”
Salient Points – Thoughts on the Future of Humanity can be viewed beginning November 7 in person at the Allegany Arts Council at 9 N. Centre Street in Cumberland, or online at www.alleganyartscouncil.org.
