“From the Depths” by Carolyn Hopkins

in the Art Trailer Gallery

October 13 through December 13, 2020

A new art exhibit in a vintage travel trailer turned permanent art gallery, at The Sou’wester Lodge.

This solo exhibition by Carolyn Hopkins showcases works made from the viewpoint of the end in order to re-examine our current political and ecological landscapes, as well as the rise of solastalgia. This work acts as an outpost from the present, positioning themselves from viewpoints of our possible futures, and endings.

Carolyn Hopkins graduated with an MFA in Sculpture from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from the Kansas City Art Institute. Her work questions the traditional cultural roles of the feminine and masculine as well as the tamed and untamed and creates outposts from which to re-examine a recognizable terrain. Carolyn has collaborated with Mark Dion and Spurse, and has been an Artist in Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC, the Vermont Studio Center, Caldera, Brush Creek, Mildred’s Lane, and Leland Ironworks. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Carolyn lives and works in Lyle, Washington on her 20 acre ranch and studio.

This trailer is a 1960’s Aloha made in Aloha, Oregon. It was rescued from a neglected RV park in the northern part of the Long Beach Peninsula. Now repaired and transformed into an art space, this art gallery is part of our Artist Residency Program and our non-profit organization, Sou’wester Arts.
