Kimberly Trowbridge: Self as Subject
Self as Subject, an exhibition of Kimberly Trowbridge‘s self portraits opens tomorrow (February 13) at Gage Academy of Art with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. An artist lecture will begin at 7. I don’t know if this painting will be in the show, but I love it:
As I’ve mentioned elsewhere on this blog, Kimberly is one of my favorite emerging local artists. Her work is a chronicle of the act of painting as a psychological exploration of self and her palette and technique are to die for. I could say more but I don’t need to. Kimberly is a rare breed among Seattle artists: she defies my impulse to intellectualize by making heart/mind/gut-wrenchingly gorgeous paintings that speak for themselves.
Her reception and lecture will take place at Gage Academy of Art, 1501 10th Ave E, in room 305.
