A special exhibition preview reception for this exhibition has been scheduled for Friday, September 7 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. This preview is free and open to the public!

A retired faculty member in the Art Department at Mount Mercy University where he taught for more than 30 years, Chuck Barth currently splits his time between his studios in Cedar Rapids and Oaxaca, Mexico. Both a painter and a printmaker, Barth's work is strongly influenced by the Mexican culture he sees all around him during his time there every year. Inspired by the rich and diverse culture of Mexico, Barth creates new tableaus, rich in color and full of vitality. This solo exhibition, his first at the CRMA since 1991, coincides with the recent release of a major monograph on his work, Charles Barth: A Kaleidoscope of Culture, which gives the exhibition its name.

This exhibition is supported in part by Bradley & Riley PC and the Momentum Fund of The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
