“Interpreting The Surface” exhibit reviewed

April 30, 2015

As I wrote in my last post, I am honored to be a part of the “Interpreting the Surface” exhibit currently at the Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne, VT.
Amy Lilly wrote an indepth review  of several works in this exhibit in the online magazine Seven Days VT including my piece, Beneath I.  It’s always interesting to me to hear how someone else sees and describes my work. Amy’s precise language makes me appreciate how carefully she observes. Here’s what she wrote:

“In Karen Kamenetzky’s colorful “Beneath I,” hand-dyed red silk stitched with jostling, circular shapes peeks from a chasm-like break in green-dyed felted wool. The wool’s textures are innumerable: large twists, thin ridges, protozoan shapes, swaths of tiny knots worked in green thread. Kamenetzky finds her inspiration in microscopic cellular life, and that metaphor fits “Interpreting the Surface” as a whole: The closer the eye gets to these surfaces, the more astounding seems the amount of work that went into their creation.”

Thank you, Amy!

The exhibit will be up until May 26th.

But where will I put it?

March 12, 2015

The wonderful exhibit in Georgetown, TX at the Georgetown Art Center opens tomorrow. The organizer, Nick Ramos, has offered to send me this very large hanging poster with the image of one of my pieces after the show closes.  I couldn’t say no but may have to  create a cathedral ceiling in my little house! I’ll figure out something…
If you’re close by please do get to the exhibit. Besides two of my pieces, you’ll have the chance of seeing work by several other very gifted artists including Deidre Adams, one of my favorites!

Poster Child

I am very honored to have been invited to be a part of an exhibit in Georgetown, Texas (just north of Austin). The organizer (I do love that he starts his emails with “Howdy!”) asked if my piece, Cultivating Connections II, could be the “poster child” for the show. Here’s the ad that will run in the Austin Monthly Magazine.

Heading to Albania!

January 17, 2015

Well, not me exactly.

But I’m honored that this creation of mine has been selected by the US State Department’s Art in Embassies program to hang in the US Embassy in Albania for the next two years!

Several years back I had two pieces selected to hang in the embassy in East Timor (yes, I had to look at a map for that one). The Art in Embassies program is one of the better uses of our tax dollars-in my opinion. What a wonderful idea to feature American artwork in our embassies to create cultural connections with folks around the world. I’m so happy to be a part of it.

Greenwich CT exhibit Opening Night

September 15, 2014
Flinn Gallery, Greenwich CTFlinn Gallery, Greenwich CT

Flinn Gallery, Greenwich CT

Eleven of my newest pieces proudly shared the walls at the Flinn Gallery in Greenwich with paintings by Riad Miah  and Grace DeGennaro alongside the mesmerizing kinetic sculptures by Anne Lilly.There was an impressive turnout and, as usual, good conversations and questions. My favorite moment was with the 90 year old woman who came up to talk to me about my art and then shared that after exploring ceramics for ten years she had recently switched to carving alabaster! So let that be an inspiration to all of you who feel it’s too late to start making art!

For lots more images of the opening check out  this short article in the Greenwich Free Press.
If you’re good at Where’s Waldo, try to find me, I’m the short curly haired roundish woman in the beige top. Or better yet, look for my work on the walls! Or even better yet, come see the exhibit if you’re close by.

Connection and silliness at the opening

September 10, 2014

My two person show with Jackie Abrams (seriously, take a look at her work) at Gallery in the Woods in Brattleboro, VT opened last Friday evening during the monthly Gallery Walk. We explained to people coming in that I was the “wall person” and she was the one on the pedestals : ).
Both Jackie and I were pleased with how our art seemed to harmoniously work together visually! We even talked about possible future exhibits together.

Many folks dropped by with lots of great questions and interest. But there were two unexpected high points for me . A few years back I had a large exhibit in the rotunda of Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Friday evening, two women (separately) talked to me about how being able to spend time with my art at that exhibit had helped them through difficult medical treatment-the power of art and healing. Made my night!
Being serious about our art, we stopped at nothing to pull viewers into the gallery.
