I enjoyed attending the opening of the C.O.L.A. Exhibit at the Municipal Art Gallery on Sunday.
The C.O.L.A. Exhibition showcases new work by each artist created with the aid of the $10,000 award from the Los Angeles Dept. of Cultural Affairs. I had two friends exhibiting Carole Kim and Krysten Cunningham. I have blogged on Krysten’s work before (a fellow weaver at the Barnsdall Art Park) – as her weaving’s physicality speaks to me. Her new work veritably jumps off the wall, seemingly wanting to walk across the room – or make a room – or protect you – from something.
Carole weaves a more ethereal space – with light and sound. Either way….inspiring stuff.
