Gallery opening on friday

21 Jun

Soad A. Kader, buscando el abrazo (searching for the embrace), 2009, monotype, 8 x 10 inches

This Friday, June 25th, Miguel Rivera and Soad A. Kader will celebrate the opening exhibition of their prints at Cara and Cabeza Contemporary. Miguel is the department chair of the printmaking program at the Kansas City Art Institute, and I’ve had the privilege of seeing him implement his cross-disciplinary approach to the field, first-hand. Therefore, this is one show I’m really looking forward to–after two semesters of Miguel teaching, watching the students in the department work, and coordinating printmaking shows, I’m sure he’s excited to share his fruits of labor and kick off the summer.

Both of the artists featured employ a gestural and organic aesthetic to convey their messages regarding “ideas of physical connectivity…[and] a tendency towards embracing the present.” Please come out and get a chance to view the work, speak with the artists, and check out this very intriguing space near the Kansas City Rivermarket.
