Contemporary American painter Carrie Ann Baade will hold solo exhibitions in Florida and Texas, and will present her work at group shows in Poland, France, New York City, and Seattle.
Carrie Ann Baade’s surreal meta-narratives detailing her depiction of the apocalyptic climate of the world are featured in a solo exhibit “The Foreshadowing of Events” at the Gadsden Art Museum in Quincy, Florida. Each painting explores themes of mortality and morality. Baade is a storyteller using narrative painting to comment on fears and introspections; the results are gothic, dark, and haunting. In her original approach, she employs collages made of images torn from the pages of art history books and repaints them into large, allegorical oil paintings. This exhibit opens Sept 28 – Dec 15, 2018. https://gadsdenarts.org/exhibitions/Baade2018
“Gospel of Sophia” features the mystical and celestial side of Carrie Ann Baade’s works with angles and themes exploring apocryphal and Biblical subject matter. Through her art, she weaves religious and mythological narratives with her own autobiographical story to examine the past in a contemporary context. Carrie Ann honors the timeless, archetypal nature of our myths, while altering the stories to keep them alive. Her work revolutionizes ideas of humanity, rejecting a rational vision of life in favor of one that asserts the value of the subconscious as she sees magic and strange beauty in the unexpected. These will be exhibited at the Jung Center in Houston November 2-28. The artist will be present for the Opening Reception November 2nd 5 to 7pm.
Baade’s next solo exhibition open in January of 2019 at the Mesa Contemporary Museum in Arizona. https://www.mesaartscenter.com/index.php/museum/art/

Curated by J Gordon. http://kirklandartscenter.org/event/apparitions/
Saturated with mythological symbolism and pagan imagery that evokes the historical idea of the witch as a contemporary feminist icon, Spellbound presents modern witchcraft as a spiritual practice freeing itself from the negative connotations inherited through centuries of persecution. The works presented in this exhibition re-appropriate and subvert imagery commonly associated with the witch as a way of directly addressing the means by which practitioners have been vilified. Our goal is to present a view of present-day paganism without diluting or commercializing the witch and her craft. Curatorated by Geneva Baldauf, Artists included are: Carrie Ann Baade, Marlene Seven Bremner, Yuko Ishii, and Chris Sheridan. http://kirklandartscenter.org/event/spellbound/
