Green & Main - Artwork by Molly Spain

Join me at Green & Main for the dsm unveiling event. Tuesday, Aug. 23, we'll celebrate the publication of the September/October issue at Green & Main, 800 19th St. in Sherman Hill. Host Silent Rivers Design + Build, led by Chaden Halfhill, has renovated the property into an ecologically sustainable building. The fun gets underway at 5 p.m., with a short program and the unveiling at 6 p.m. Complimentary valet parking provided.

I will have a small collection of my works on paper on display in the beautiful new space on the second floor. The works are a sampling of the last 4 years of sketching, painting and printmaking.

Molly Spain - Recent Works

Opening Reception Thursday, January 28, 4-6pm
Proof |  1301 Locust Street, Des Moines, Iowa  |  515 244-0655  |  Directions

Stop down Thursday evening between 4-6 and help me celebrate this exciting new venue for my art! Enjoy Happy Hour prices on wine and appetizers, and stay for dinner if you have the time. Proof offers the most unique food in town with a passion for great wine, housemade cocktails and top-notch service.

On display you'll see five large monoprints and four gouache paintings. Over the past several years I’ve been interested in using base, monochromatic source materials such as charcoal, unglazed porcelain, and a limited palette of ink and paint to give form to that which is felt but unseen. The prints denote rigidity of structure but are only a fraction of what once was. Over time, slowly worn and taken from, given new form. From a succession of 12 total, each print is uniquely directed by the prior, impacting the next. The gouache express snapshots or cross-sections of assorted levels of indistinct communion. 

Throughout the spring and early summer I will continue to circulate in new pieces so stay curious.

New Works on paper by Molly Spain
Opening Reception Nov 12, 5-7pm  | Cafe ZON  
2925 Ingersoll Ave, Des Moines, Iowa  |  Directions

With these new works on paper, I examine the process of searching, discovering and bringing forth. Acutely influenced by my travels and historic architecture and design, the large mono-prints depict objects unearthed while the smaller paintings speak to embellishment and the energy surrounding discovery.

The prints are five from a succession of 12, with each print building off the prior, setting the foundation for the next, and lending a connecting motif. 

An opening reception with complimentary hors d'oeuvres begins at 5pm. 
Exhibition continues thru Dec 17, 2015
