Thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday to “Meet the Artists”. It was a pleasure to share my thoughts and insights on my work with you. Here is the link to the column in Globe West.
Tonight is the opening reception for the Emotion/Imagine exhibit at Galatea. And I just can’t imagine that you wouldn’t want to be at the “Best of the New” gallery as named by Boston Globe Magazine! There will be beautiful art, refreshments and lively conversation. I can’t think of a better way to start your weekend. Here’s a sneak preview of the art video that will be on display showcasing my art and that of Becky Gibbs (the video creator). Come down and meet the artist behind the “Postcard a day”.

Kathleen Hendrick of Southboro, MA, and Becky Kisabeth Gibbs of Wayland, MA, will be exhibiting their two-person show at Galatea Fine Art, Boston’s newest contemporary cooperative art gallery in the SOWA district February 4 to February 28, 2010.
Kathleen Hendrick’s complex, mixed media compositions explore the emotions originating from deep within the human psyche. She combines intricate drawings and abstracted forms to create dense and colorful images. She builds her collages with materials ranging from the exotic, such as fibrous Japanese rice paper, to common household resources. Layers are pressed with texture, printed, removed, painted, scratched away and sanded. These processes mirror how our own lives may be built up or worn away by the society in which we live. Hendrick’s recent work references the inner layers of the human psyche: what lies hidden, what is revealed, and the range of emotions found therein.
Becky Kisabeth Gibbs’ biomorphic abstract paintings suggest a vista of duality: imaginary or real? The works disrupt the experience of scale and space so as to create ambiguity: between large and small, microscopic or interstellar. Shapes within this abstract thought space can explode or implode. The first step of her process is at once controlled and uncertain: dropping India ink onto wet paper, washing it off, and repeating the process until the composition emerges. Gibbs’ paintings reveal her interest in scientific imagery, including the scanning electron microscope, photography from space, and naturally occurring patterns such as fractals. The imagery is referenced for its abstract qualities, and is compelling to the artist because it is not readily evident to the invisible eye without the use of technology, yet is underlying all of nature and its beauty.
Join us at Galatea Fine Art for our new exhibits opening tonight during SOWA First Friday. These exhibits will feature the work of Sean Palmatier, Wilson Hunt and Alice Shafer.
Friday January 8th, 6 to 8pm, 460 Harrison Avenue
