Conceptual Currents at the Shirt Factory Gallery opens June 6, 2015, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m.
Kate Austin-Avon is an upstate New York artist and entrepreneur, and has been showing her textural, experimental watermedia artwork in the Glens Falls area since 2007. Her studio and gallery is located in Suite 201a of the Shirt Factory Arts & Healing Center in Glens Falls, New York.
Kate’s mixed media works are mainly created on Yupo, a plastic paper that allows the color to slide over the top of it, delivering a challenge in release of control. Kate’s process is exploratory and historically has also been autobiographical, but she also works in abstract forms; some with deeper meaning and some that are purely playforms. Her additional painting tools include cling wrap, feathers, rubbing alcohol and locks of her own hair.
Museum-quality giclée prints of some pieces are available for sale. She also creates eco-friendly “Trashion” jewelry. Select pieces of Kate’s work can be seen in her gallery at Advokate.
Contact Kate: (518) 353-2121 or email@example.com. Kate’s studio is located on the second floor of The Shirt Factory in Suite 201a at 21 Cooper Street in Glens Falls, New York.
