    Carrollton Center for the Arts to Showcase Wondering and Wandering

    Renowned surrealist painter, Carrie Ann Baade’s show, Wondering and Wandering, will open doors and windows of imagination at the Carrollton Center for the Arts, October 24 – December 7.

    “Baade’s work is a beautiful blend of imagery inspired by paintings of the past and surreal figures that elicit both a sense of mystery and elegance,” said Marcella Kuykendall, Carrollton’s visual arts coordinator. “The artist reflects upon issues such as morality, politics and the individual quest for self-expression. Visitors will enjoy investigating the rich details and symbols in each work for the stories they hold and the fantastical worlds and characters they create.”

    Baade uses remnants of Renaissance and Baroque paintings to create surreal landscapes inhabited by exotic figures. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, including the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and solo exhibitions at the Delaware Contemporary, Billy Shire Fine Arts in Los Angeles, the Ningbo Art Museum in China and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida.

    Raised in Colorado, Baade now lives and works in Tallahassee as associate professor of painting and drawing at Florida State University.

    The exhibit is sponsored by Walt D’Ambrosio and Susan Thomas. There will be a Halloween-themed opening reception featuring live musicians on October 24 at 5:00 p.m.
