Overview:

Gale S. McKee’s exhibit titled The American Car: A Family Portrait is inspired by vintage photographs of families, couples, and even dogs standing in front of their cars. McKee enlarges each photo, prints it on canvas and then starts to imagine and create the life of the people in the photos. McKee uses acrylic paint in an attempt to recover the story of the lives in the photo. Some images are sentimental, while others venture into humor or fantasy. She says, “When I process these imaginings I realize how similar feelings of family and pride are a constant emotion in human lives and how transient we humans really are.” galesmckee.com
