Arts: Works Of Kristin Kimmel In Upcoming Exhibit At Kariton Art Gallery
Submitted. The Abbotsford Arts Council is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibit at the Kariton Art Gallery: “The Christina Lake Series” and “The Metallic Drawing Series” [Click On image For Full Story] works in mixed media by local artist Kristin Krimmel.
“The Christina Lake Series” is a celebration of clouds in which Krimmel tries to capture the “dynamic passion of the sky” she witnessed while vacationing at an isolated cabin on Christina Lake in 2002.
In “The Metallic Drawing Series,” Krimmel uses metallic inks, graphite and an occasional bit of watercolour to find new ways of expression, much like “a scientist explores the known to be able to discover new concepts.” This body of work includes drawings of landscapes as well as drawings in which she expresses an acerbic sense of humour about the world around us, commenting on things as diverse as corporation’s fads and fashions, the construction industry and socio-politics.
Kristin Krimmel is a Canadian artist with an exhibiting history spanning four decades. She taught at the Emily Carr College of Art & Design (now Emily Carr University) for six years and possesses a life interest in the creation of art.
The exhibit will be on display from June 22 to July 17, 2012, at the Kariton Art Gallery, located in Mill Lake Park at 2387 Ware Street. The Kariton’s hours of operation are Tuesday to Sunday from 9:30am to 4:30pm. All are invited to meet Kristin Krimmel and view her exquisite artwork at the opening reception of the exhibit, to be held on Sunday, June 24, 2012, from 1pm to 4pm. For additional information, please contact our office by phone at (604)852-9358, by email at email@example.com, or visit our website at abbotsfordartscouncil.org.
