First Thursday Reception:
June 1, 6 - 8 pm

California Bay Area painter Chester Arnold’s visual narratives combine the cataclysmic and the sublime. Arnold’s latest series of oil paintings explore the natural world’s entanglement with humanity through dreamlike depictions of catastrophe and isolation.

Born in 1952, Chester Arnold received his MFA from San Francisco Art Institute in 1987. His work has been exhibited in solo shows at the Salt Lake Art Center (Salt Lake City, UT), San Jose Museum of Art (San Jose, CA) and the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (Novato, CA), as well as in group exhibitions at the National Museum in Gdansk, Poland, and the Associacao Alumni, Sao Paulo, Brazil, among others.
