A new body of work from painter Savannah Jewell White will open to the public on Friday, July 24, at The Medicine Factory, 85 Virginia Ave. W. Entitled Yearning Horizons the show reflects an overwhelming passion of the artist: travel. Amsterdam, Cape Town, Bangkok, Milan, Granada, Osaka, Dublin, Singapore, London, Barcelona, Mt. Fuji, Paris.
From Brazil to Croatia, the travel bug is not simply adventure for White but inspiration. Her intellectual curiosity and cultural inhaling takes shape and is expressed in her paintings, some more abstract, some more representational, all breathing a spirit of irrepressible wonder in fluid color and motion.
Self-taught as a painter, White’s forays into fashion and experience with photography help shape her ability to capture expression. Now in her third show in two years and her first solo show in a large space, she stretches effortlessly with the works.
“I see so much when I travel , both beauty and despair; it shapes my perspective and who I am. Painting is the best way I know to share the experience of this kind of awakening. I am ever learning how much I don’t know about the world and it is an exhilarating thrill,” said White.
The show opening will be 5-8 pm on Friday, July 24, and there will be additional viewing hours on Saturday, July 25 from 10 am to 2 pm and viewing by appointment through August 1. We'll work to have no more than 25 guests in the space at any one time , social distancing must be practiced, and masks are strongly urged.

I always think of this as the eulogy section but here goes:
"Ken is the ultimate tuned-in and connected guy. Well-known and respected in the market, Ken knows who, what, where, and how when things need to get done: a real go-to guy." Bruce Meisterman
"I have worked with Ken on several projects, and I have to say he is a go getter. He approaches each task with excitement and a positive attitude. He's motivated, dedicated, and creative. It was my pleasure to work with Ken, and I hope we have the opportunity to work together again soon"
