Echoes at Kathryn Markel in NYC

"Porch Lights On", oil, ink, acrylic and spray paint on linen, 36 x 70 inches, 2017
 I'm thrilled to be included in a group exhibition opening at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts this week! "Echoes" will open with a reception (on my birthday!) Thursday, November 30.  The work of Peter Hoffer, Sarah Irvin, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Ryan Sarah Murphy, and myself will be on view through December 23, 2017.

Curators Alyssa Alexander and Celeste Kaufman say "the works collected in this group show are echoes both in process and concept.  Their origins are transformed and concealed.  The resulting pieces appear to be their own entities, but still contain whispers of how they began.  There is a loss of form, color, or imagery, but that does not detract from what remains. These artists are also investigating the loss of places, time, objects, and concepts as they create so that the work itself becomes an homage, an echo, to these distant sources."

This is my first exhibition in New York and I'm excited its with a gallery that has long been a proponent of women in the arts. The Guerrilla Girls mentioned Kathryn Markel in this piece at the Whitney Museum this year! Way to go!!!!
