Featuring the work of four artists, Donna Ellery, Sande French-Stockwell, Alexis Kyriak, and Janice Walrafen, the show explores the mind/body relationship and the nature of being. Is the body simply a container for our physical components, or does it hold more?

Knot Work

New Works by Kristen Tordella-Williams
Opening March 14th 6-8pm

 

Join One Arts Center in welcoming Mississippi based artist Kristen Tordella-Williams as she presents Knot Work with an opening reception Saturday, March 14th from 6-8PM. Knot Work is a series of sculptures that employ the use of weaving yarn, embroidery, and knotting through handmade paper, wood, and mixed media. The artist shows us manipulations of thread, bound images, varied patterns, and processes that reflect the meditation involved in repetitive action.

In addition to the two and three-dimensional work shown at OneARTS, there will be a performance by Lifetime Guarantee, a collaboration between Jenny Hillenbrand and Kristen Tordella-Williams. Lifetime Guarantee focuses on the relationship between the body and household tools and products. The performance will begin at 6:30pm and will last roughly thirty minutes.

BIO:
Kristen works across media exploring imagery and sculpture generated from the performative process. She uses performance and sculpture to investigate issues of labor, identity, gender, and memory using an array of material commonly found at hardware stores, supermarkets and recycling bins. Raised in Massachusetts, Kristen received her B.F.A in sculpture from UMass Dartmouth.  She completed her M.F.A concentrating in Sculpture and Dimensional Studies from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2012. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and has been an artist in residence at Salem Art Works and Franconia Sculpture Park. Kristen was recently a visiting artist at Coles Castings in Shaftesbury, England and worked as a documentary crew member for the 7th International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art at Pedvāle Open-Air Art Museum in Latvia. Now, Kristen is working on building a paper studio at Millsaps College. She is greatly enjoying her first year as an Assistant Professor of Art and is currently teaching drawing, digital arts, sculpture, performance art, and paper making. She lives and works in Jackson, MS and is represented by Art Shape Mammoth.

ArtShape Mammoth presents “Honey Lane” an exhibit of new paintings by Maureen O’Leary at the ONE  Arts Center

Opening Reception with artist talk Saturday the 7th 5-8pm
Closing Feb 28th

H. L. Wilson writes in “A Short Sketch of the Evolution of the Bungalow: From its Primitive Crudeness to its Present State of Artistic Beauty and Cozy Convenience,” circa 1908,  “Number 352 is a good example of a large roomy house at moderate cost.  Every room is light and airy, and there is not an inch of waste space.  The exterior, with its well proportioned lines, is very attractive, and the floor plans will repay careful examination.  A most satisfactory house in every respect.”

Artist Bio:
O’Leary is a painter and photographer who has recently exhibited at Aljirra Contemporary in Newark, New Jersey, Wayfarers in Bushwick, New York and Marshall Arts in Memphis, Tennessee.  Her collaborative book of photography with Terri Phillips was published in 2013.  She lives and works in New York City and Mount Sinai, New York.
