Marta Chaffee: The Places We’ve Lived

Marta Chaffee: The Places We’ve Lived

Marta Chaffee’s practice draws from California landscapes and the implied freedom of the American west. This exhibition, organized by her daughter Aandrea Stang, showcases paintings and drawings that relate to the artist's numerous road trips—from mundane, local stoplight views, to vistas inspired by the Golden State Freeway or Interstate 395, which she often traveled to visit family in the Eastern Sierras. In her paintings and drawings, Chaffee has mapped locations she often returned to by necessity or choice, organizing both observed and invented views as seen through her windshield.

Please join us for a conversation with Marta Chaffee, Aandrea Stang, and Irene Tsatsos, the Armory's Director of Exhibition Programs and Chief Curator, on Sunday, September 23, at 2:00 PM. The conversation is free and open to the public. RSVPs via the Facebook Event are appreciated.

Armory galleries are open daily from 12 to 5 pm (closed Tuesdays and holidays). Admission is always free.
