Matt Duffin: Retrospection

Gilman Contemporary

Matt Duffin's encaustic paintings use primarily black and white tones with selected pops of color to bring attention to his irreverent subjects. Employing simplicity within the imagery allows the painstaking qualities of his methodology to shine. Encaustic works are made using wax to which pigment has been added. The wax is heated, applied to a prepared wood surface, and shaped using special brushes and tools. To achieve this level of detail requires exactitude and skill. Considering the rigorous amount of time it takes to complete each piece, it is no surprise that Duffin's themes tend to explore nostalgia, solitude and irony.


Paul Béliveau

Gilman Contemporary

Paul Béliveau’s Morandi is inspired by the often pastel-toned works of Italian painter Giorgio Morandi. While Béliveau has treated book spines as subject matter before, in the Morandi series the books themselves, rather than the text that decorates their covers, are treated as the aesthetic quality. Outside reference to author, subject, and image is missing and instead, Béliveau revels in the shape and volume of the books responding and building upon each other as a methodical convergence of color and form.

The Argyros

ODC (Oberlin Dance Collective) was founded in 1971 by Artistic Director Brenda Way. Brenda, who trained under the legendary George Balanchine, moved ODC to San Francisco in 1976, aiming to ground the company in a dynamic and pluralistic urban setting. ODC was one of the first American companies to return, after a decade of pedestrian exploration, to virtuosic technique in contemporary dance and to commit major resources to interdisciplinary collaboration, including musical commissions, for the repertory. ODC performs its imaginative repertory for more than 50,000 people annually. The company has long been recognized for its rigorous technique as well as its wide ranging collaborations with other artists. In 2024, Brenda was inducted into the California Hall of Fame with a class that included other luminaries such as Ava DuVernay, Los Lobos, and The Go-Gos. The Argyros is honored to welcome this groundbreaking company and its visionary leader back to Ketchum!
