Artist Reception: Kendra Dawn Wadsworth "Extension"

When: Thu., Sept. 6, 5-8 p.m. 2018
Join us on Thursday, September 6* for a reception to celebrate the opening of Kendra Dawn Wadsworth's solo show, Extenison. This exhibit will be featured in Quirk's Main Gallery as well as The Mezzanine at Quirk Hotel. In Kendra Dawn Wadsworth’s paintings and ceramics, coarse, jagged surfaces expose her kinetic process. Competing dualities—confinement / exposure, entrapment / liberation, crumpling / unfolding, surface / depth—move across and through her works. These juxtapositions disclose a sensibility towards chaos that Wadsworth cultivates through intuition and material responsiveness. Yet, while Wadsworth engages objects and forms that suggest conflict and struggle, her decomposition implies regeneration. The decay and deterioration on view offer their own forms of energy. (Emily Smith, Executive Director, 1708 Gallery)
