Saturday, June 5, 6 p.m.–9 p.m.
While Leestemaker's hurricanes of paint do not blow down our houses or flood our streets, they look – and feel – as if they could. They also look, and feel, as if they could transport our spirits to a place of ecstasy. Leestemaker finds the storm and invites us to ride it with him, to a place where painting and picture have entirely conflated.
– Peter Frank, Art Critic, Senior Museum Curator
