Artist/Writer Mixes It Up in Exhibit at MCC
(Bradenton, Fla., Sept. 5, 2006) - Text, image and computer-generated art are combined in an "Open Book: Works by Kim Northrop" exhibit that continues through Oct. 10 in the fine art gallery at MCC Bradenton, 5840 26th St. West.
"Kim varies her text and image assemblages. This exhibit is a showcase for the range of her work. It's unusual to see an artist vary in form so much. I like how she keeps mixing it up," said Joseph Loccisano, gallery manager and curator of the exhibit.
A Sarasota resident, Northrop exhibits nationally. The MCC exhibit includes more than 30 of her works. The smallest is the size of a reader-friendly page in a book. Larger works have a solidly sculptural, luminous presence generated by layering of images in two-part epoxy. A preview of Northrop's work may be viewed online at kimnorthrop.com.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call (941) 752-5225.
