Current Exhibitions at the KIA
|Inka Essenhigh: A Fine Line
September 15 - January 6, 2019
Essenhigh is known for her experiments with enamel paint, traditional oils, and printmaking in her fantastical images of the everyday, both urban and rural. Essenhigh s large-format paintings are filled with otherworldly expression; ghosts and gods, monsters and maenads carry Essenhigh's portrayal of the 21st-century human from her brush into the viewer's imagination.
|The Way Forward: New Acquisitions at the KIA
July 28 - December 2
This diverse selection of 80+ works acquired over the last four years reveals our eagerness to enrich one of the community's most treasured assets -- our art collection. In pursuit of our vision to bring the visual arts to everyone, we work to make evident that innovation, intelligence, talent, and beauty exist within and emerges from people representing every walk of life. We seek and acquire new works to expand not just our holdings, but our understanding and appreciation of the culture of the American experience, along with global perspectives of life from around the world. The show includes paintings, photography, collage and mixed media works, drawings, prints and multiples, and ceramics. The first phase of the exhibition will open in the Groos and Markin galleries on July 28, and an international group of artists will be featured in the Joy Light East Asian Gallery beginning August 25.
