EBSQ’s very own Angie Reed Garner, along with former EBSQer Kim Richardson, have an upcoming show in Louisville, KY, opening September 1st!
Angie Reed Garner, Kim Richardson to open Sept. 1 at garner narrative
garner narrative presents new paintings by Angie Reed Garner and Kim
Richardson. The show opens Sept. 1 and runs through Oct. 1 with
two receptions: Thursday Sept. 1 (preview) and Friday Sept 2 (Trolley
Hop), both 6-9pm.
Garner developed the expat series over four years of living in two
very different Islamic cities: Lahore, Pakistan and Abu Dhabi, United
Arab Emirates. The works combine saturated oil paint and textiles for
symbolic narratives of identity, struggle, and reconciliation. “It’s
one thing to move abroad and take snapshots, try to explain what it’s
like, and I’ve done my fair share of that. But with these paintings, I
share about my life on my own terms, as a visual thinker. The
expatriations have not been low-impact experiences! And how could they
be. Louisville and Abu Dhabi are on opposite sides of the planet in
more than one way. It’s right there in the paintings, how I had to
stretch and change to cover that distance, learn to hold both places
at once… when I thought I might snap with the strain, and why I
ultimately didn’t.” Garner considers Louisville home, and lives most
of the year in Abu Dhabi.
Kim Richardson of St. Louis MO paints enigmatic oil portraits of the
self on found wood in her series, investigating the cries of crows.
Says Richardson, “I paint on discarded and weathered wood found almost
anywhere: alleys, streets, garages, backyards, someone’s woodshop. The
rough surfaces paired with a delicate style of painting allude to a
union of opposites. The imagery itself gives expression to the glamour
of emotions like love, kindness, charity and self-sacrifice happily
living side by side with uglier aspects of human nature like
intolerance, rigidity, fanaticism and brutality.”
garner narrative is located on the corner of Market and Clay Streets,
642 E. Market St. Hours are Wed-Sat, 1-6.
