Past Exhibitions

Inside/Outside is an open studio exhibition including outdoor installations by visual artist Spelman Evans Downer. It will take place from April 11 to April 26, 2020. Postponed due to Corona Virus. To be held at 5579 and 5583 Alta Avenue in Yucca Valley, California, the showing will have a comprehensive overview of the artist’s signature map space aerial landscape paintings created over the last 20 years. The studio is a site specific passive solar building designed to facilitate fabrication and display of the artist’s increasingly larger oil impasto and poured enamel compositions on panels. The one of a kind structure designed and built by Mr. Downer who studied passive solar architecture at Stanford University, is fitted with hanging rails to display artworks outdoors. Both the outside and inside walls will be used for the exhibition. In addition, a new shade wall that helps cool the building in hot weather and is also a prototype for public art installations will be showing Mr. Downer’s largest painting to date; Greater Los Angeles 2018.
