Opening Reception
Plus… A night of short films with Julia & Kye

Impressive in execution and engaging in subject matter, Kate’s colored pencil, marker, acrylic, graphite and photo-collage works on paper and Duralar now grace the walls of Amy’s studio. Kate did an amazing job of choosing which pieces to show and installing the work. Responding to the space, a preliminary hanging of the work was tried, and that evolved gracefully into the installation in the studio now.

Collaborative duo Julia Dzwonkoski and Kye Potter showed 10 short films and videos from 8:30-9pm. Poignant, absurd and sincere, I thought the selection played perfectly in the context of Kate’s work. Julia and Kye have organized exhibitions and screenings at the MAK Center and the Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles; the Carnegie Art Center in Buffalo, New York; and the Herndon Gallery, Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio. Creators of paintings, works on paper, videos and numerous artists’ books, they are also co-authors of a book of interviews conducted while traveling throughout the US, The Sky Opened Up with Answers (Onestar Press, 2009). www.weirdshadow.com
