Land Escapes Art Show

Posted on | March 23, 2012 | 3 Comments

Saturday, March 24 from 6:00 to 9:00 is the opening of Land Escapes, a show I am doing with Abira Ali at SPACE – South Pasadena Art Center. The description of the show from the gallery’s website:

Land Escapes features the work of Los Angeles artists Abira Ali and Kathleen Coyle. Originally conceived by Joan Weinzettle – who created the window installation – the show is a visual dialog between long-time friends Ali and Coyle. Created independently, the two bodies of work investigate the artists’ physical and personal landscapes. Ali’s paintings on canvas and wood celebrate her neighborhood – in which local and exotic fauna appear – exploring our relationships with our non-human allies and the world at large. Coyle uses her masterful needlework skills to embellish painted and blank canvases with wings, rain and teardrops. We follow the threads of visions and memories to meditate on her questions of “Where do we belong and how do we get there?”
