A Closing Exhibition by Stephen Chesley & Karl L. Larsen
Amidst the deconstructed site of Vista Studios, artists Stephen Chesley (1952) and Karl L. Larsen (1985) practiced patience and resourcefulness in their collaboration of Remnant(s); the title of a one-piece, one-night closing exhibition set in the halls of a once art oasis. Ongoing demolition of the 28-year-old studio/gallery offered inspiration to create—one last time. Remnants of paint, drywall, steel studs and miscellaneous debris served not only as supplies but a concise reminder of the importance of creativity and art in society—not as commodity, but as a necessity.'
