From April 10-April 26, 2015, New City Arts presents “Line & Color”, a Willco Studios Collaborative Show featuring new work by Charlottesville artists Stephanie Fishwick, Ken Horne and Cate West Zahl at The WVTF and Radio IQ Gallery.
These artists share a downtown studio together, and their exhibit includes oil and mixed media paintings, works on paper, gouache on claybord, and sumi ink on paper.
Stephanie Fishwick is an internationally recognized calligrapher who’s work has been described as a modern twist on calligraphic tradition combining a respect for foundations, with a rule-breaking spirit. She employs a wide variety of calligraphic tools, papers, textiles, inks and found objects to articulate both words and portraits. Stephanie earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Arts & Design from the top public art school in the nation; Virginia Commonwealth University. Her work is inspired by music, decorative arts, décor, and most of all, her husband and son.
Cate West Zahl first studied art under Lee Newman at the Holton-Arms school, and then went on to earn her BA in studio art from Hamilton College. While her academic training was based in the standards of a perceptual fine arts tradition, she is exploring making abstract works.
Ken Horne‘s abstract works use color, shape, and design to explore notions of self, boundaries, and relating. Often referencing aerial mapping and cartography, his work alludes to an inner landscape, while also speaking to the ways contemporary society divides the world and organizes our spaces and experiences. In focusing attention on these issues, Ken invites viewers to contemplate how the landscape functions as both a physical space and a psychological terrain that expresses tension, joy, desire and other emotions. Ken holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
*Please note that this is not the First Friday of April, due to the Easter weekend holiday April 3 – 5. The Garage, CitySpace, and New City Arts will host their April exhibit openings on April 10.
