Coming October 2021
Hosted By 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace
October 16th - November 13th, 2021
Saturday October 16th marks the final of three Mini Solo Show collaborative exhibitions hosted by 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace throughout this year. The two shows that featured earlier in the year owe their success to the eclecticism of the curation, ensuring that there is a genre on offer to suit all artistic tastes.
Seven Australian artists will contribute a small body of work, unlike a standard group showing however, the beauty in this type of exhibition lies in the diversity of the art on offer. Australian contemporaries Ariel Katzir, Brendan Kelly, Caitlyn Taylor, Mellissa Read-Devine, Michelle Fogarty, Michelle Selway Lampard & Patrick McMahon will each showcase a collection of work that portrays their artistic perspective via a thematic story that embodies their current creative identity. From abstraction to hyper-realism, surrealism to contemporary impressionism, there is a delicate, esoteric tone to this upcoming show that will take viewers on a journey like no other!
Indeed, it is a powerful experience when one artist exhibits a body of work. The undulation of story intricately woven together by each piece culminates into a personal journey that can only be forged through the enigmatic dynamic between the artist and viewer. Imagine the magnitude of that experience multiplied by seven. That is what 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace promises in their upcoming “Mini Solo Show” collective.
Director Terri Lew conceptualised the ‘Mini Solo Shows’ last year as means to continue to support local artists, as well as delight art enthusiasts, amidst the changing cultural climate. The gallery has also partnered with local brewers Young Henry’s Brewery for the forthcoming show, who will be providing guests complimentary tastings of their popular brew. Live music will also be played by the James Street Preachers.
