Artist Talk Keendy and Gonzales IG CAL.jpg
Artist Talk with Claire Kennedy & Victoria Gonzales

Saturday, June 18, 2022

1:00 p.m

Join us for an artist talk with Claire Kennedy and Victoria Gonzales, who will discuss the common themes in their solo exhibitions. Kennedy's exhibition 'One Fingers, Once Hand' finds the artist creating her own language by mediating on found and fabricated objects, then placing them strategically to converse with each other and the viewer, while breaking away from the expectations of the material and space. In the exhibition 'Into a Spacious Place' Gonzales creates a record of mundane yet impactful experiences of everyday life. Memory and space create a visual narrative of the physical and metaphorical ways [she] navigates the world around [her]. Space is sometimes a place of comfort or other times a souvenir of a distant event.
