Bridget Kirkland’s body of work is titled,”Whaddya Say Jim.” For Kirkland not all memories or stories are recalled perfectly. It is here that her work begins, in a place where thoughts are patchy and stories are recreated. The stories she tells are fragmented and reveal only a glimpse into the larger narrative. Born in Philadelphia, Bridget Kirkland was raised on the lakeshore of Erie, PA. Summer art classes and a grandmother who “looked at things differently” shaped her personal outlook. Solving visual problems coupled with an innate ability to “see through the fluff” allows Kirkland to express art through fresh, clean, honest design.

The show reception is this Friday, 6:30-8pm. The show will be up in the Elizabeth Patrick Dunlap Gallery until May 5.

Absence

Absence, Art Installation by Reeta Leinonen

“Nothing but everything.

(Buddha)

We are condemned to be free.

(Sartre)

Our lives are based on repetition and that way

on equal basis on

the moments in between –

the silences before the beat.

The space you see,

is a piece of reality,

a state of mind

empty,

a void,

a pause,

an absence yet to be filled.”

Shameless self-promotion ahead… Thursday Night’s Art Opening – Bindings

Standard

Drop by for the opening of Bindings, a collection of artwork, yes…by me.  Forgive the self-promotion, but I hope my offer of food helps with your decision.  Oh… the art, too, of course.

Here is the serious part …{ahem}:

Art Installation by Lee Ann Harrison

You are invited….no strings attached.

Bindings is a social commentary art installation exploring family restraints, diversity, discrimination, and inclusion.

You are cordially invited to attend.  I promise the hanging lady will let you leave.  Afterwards, let’s trek to Art Frenzy for STOP #2 of a 3-stop Thursday night art adventure!
