Abstractscapes, an exhibit of landscape photography and acrylic paintings by Duluth-based artists Samantha Pranger and Jonathan Thunder opens at Washington Gallery.

Abstractscapes takes its' name from a new body of abstract work by local landscape photographer Samantha Pranger and features paintings by Jonathan Thunder. Though the two artists have dramatically different styles, they share a deep connection with the natural world. Abstractscapes opens on Friday, July 10th 2015 from 7 to 10 pm and closes Friday, July 31st from 7 to 10 pm at Washington Gallery.

Pranger has spent the last two years building up a body of work that represents a fresh take on the ordinary. “This show is more about what the viewer brings to each piece than my take on the work. I wanted to break away somewhat from my past work and try to bring people into my world- to allow them a glimpse of the world through my eyes.”

Thunder describes his work as, “like entries in a scrapbook. They're conceptual snapshots of events, characters, epiphanies and dreams that shape my life.” His paintings explore personal themes of identity, life transitions, internal conflict and self-transformation. A strong theme focuses on the ability of the self to break away from “what it has been programmed to do.”

Abstractscapes is view able Fridays July 17th and 24th from 4 to 9 pm; Saturdays and Sundays from July 11th to 26th from noon to 6 pm as well as by appointment. Washington Gallery is located in the former Washington Junior High School at 315 North Lake Avenue in Duluth.

Founded in 1996, Washington Studios Artists' Cooperative, a community housing facility for artists, fosters the arts by providing a nurturing environment in which artists can create, exhibit, perform, conduct business and live safely and afford ably. The co-op is owned by ArtSpace Projects, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit, and managed by Performance Property Management Company of Minneapolis.
