DZINE Gallery announces: Join us for an evening conversation with a group of six talented artists as they discuss their original works of fine art featured in the exhibitions BURNING BRIGHT and VINCULUM at the gallery. Sharon Kyle Kuhn, Adia Millett, Lauren Parks, Carrie Ann Plank, David Reposar and Jane Shircliff will share the methods and inspirations behind their works that include mixed media, textiles, photography, printmaking and kiln glass.

Our Artists in Conversation series strives to build community and open a dialogue between artists and with the public through curated talks in our gallery. This is the second in a series of three evening conversations that will take place over the next few months. Each conversation will feature a different group of artists.

Curated by Philip Bewley, the BURNING BRIGHT exhibition is a result of recent conversations with local artists who are refocusing their practice in a time of political upheaval. The work produced for this show reflects their process of looking inward and expressing their own personal, spiritual and political voices. BURNING BRIGHT is on view at DZINE Gallery through October 2017.

Master printmaker and multi-disciplinary artist Carrie Ann Plank’s solo exhibition Vinculum is also now on view at Dzine Gallery. The exhibition includes new work in various media including mono prints, work on panel and resin, works on panel and encaustic, and glass casting. I love listening to Carrie Ann discuss her work; she is intelligent, clear and altogether fascinating and intellectually stimulating. She expands my mind. Carrie Ann says, “My major medium of work is printmaking and print based installation. I have been working with employing new technology such as utilizing CNC routers and laser cutters to carve matrices that can be both printed and cast. With the implementation of the digital fabrication techniques, I have created large-scale work that incorporates new technology, experimentation, and traditional techniques. I am exploring information systems and how we visually process them, and I am very interested in reinterpreting and reorganizing visual information. I focus on how organic forms can be reduced to their base structure and how the inherent pattern of these forms leaves a residue, a vestige, an impression.”
