“Lineages,” Featuring Art by Kathy Draper and Aisha Nailah, Opens May 3 at Curtis Gallery, New Canaan Library
May 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Vibrant colors, shapes and patterns sweep across the canvasses, not unlike the sweep of a hand, representing and reflecting the arc – or lineage – of one’s life experience. “Lineages”, a visually arresting joint exhibition, features mixed media art by Kathy Draper and Aisha Nailah. The exhibition runs from May 3 through June 17, 2018, with an opening reception on Thursday, May 3 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. A Q & A with the artists will begin at 6:30 p.m.; all are welcome.
Though vastly different in subject, color palette and intensity, the commonality in Draper and Nailah’s work lies in the use of shapes and the repetition of patterns. Whether it’s Draper’s focus on the patterns of nature, or Nailah’s reflections on the experience of being an African American woman in America, their art allows the artist to speak directly to the viewer.
“Lineages” is sponsored by the Art Committee of New Canaan Library, and is curated by Annamari Mikkola and Greg Welz. For additional information please contact Christle Chumney at 203.594.5075 or visit newcanaanlibrary.org.
