When: Fri., Nov. 7, 7-10 p.m. 2014
Funkyard Art Gallery & Coffee Shop will host an opening reception for local artist, Grace Kite. Kite is a self-taught mixed media artist, born and raised in Indiana & currently working from her studio in the SoBro Arts Community. She draws upon her personal history to create mixed-media that tell the rich stories of her life. Growing up in a family with both European and Asian heritages, she found herself collecting fragments of family memories, stories, and daily experiences, while finding the common thread of meaning within her own life. From this she creates visual statements: art that reflects her distinct impression of life and living. Kite loves traveling and photographing street art, and uses her travels as inspiration. Kite’s November show is titled “Guardians” and will be on display the entire month.
Funkyard will also have live music by Bryce Pierson & Tony Popov from 7-10:00 PM.
