“Sunday Painter” is an exhibition that examines atypical mediums, outside the scope of an artist’s conventional practice. The term “Sunday Painter” has historically referred to a painter who is unschooled or only paints in their spare time (typically on Sundays, when free). This show subverts the idea of the hobbyist artist, with the artist as hobbyist.

Fourteen Flux Factory artists (Catalina Alvarez, Sholeh Asgary, Danny Crump, Sarah Dahlinger, Dew, Daniel Fishkin, Rory Fitzgerald Bledsoe, Cayla Lockwood, Gil Lopez, Rhonda Lowry, Richard Nathaniel, Nova Scott-James, Jonathan Sims, and Amia Yokoyama) utilize an alternative process or medium – beyond the purview of what they regularly show. Varying in medium, the work universally feels more private, intimate and/or vulnerable – a different kind of risk. Sunday Painter encapsulates the ethos of Flux – a place that encourages the artist to experiment, cross-train and explore methods and processes that are inventive and unfamiliar.
