Katha Rossein Opening Reception
May 12, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-6
The Charles J. Wyly Gallery at the Art Base is pleased to present local artist Katha Rossein in an upcoming exhibition, Body Celebration. Opening reception is Friday, May 12, from 5:00-7:00P. Exhibition will be on view May 12–June 3.
Featuring vibrant paintings, mixed media works and prints on metal, Body Celebration invites the viewer to consider the universality of the human form and its importance as a visceral voice. This figurative work celebrates the body in color and movement—to capture how the body speaks.
Influenced by the anti-war, civil rights and women’s movements of the 1960’s, Katha’s training as a painter and printmaker combined to speak to the politics of the times. Add a medical degree, and her concentration shifted from political to personal and the deeper appreciation of the body.
