Evening Reception Invite

Evening Reception Invite

 

Wednesday, October 4, 2017 — 7–9 p.m.

Meet artists Kalina Wilson and Kristy Kun as their art exhibitions open in Lan Su during the month of October. Wilson is a sketch artist specializing in on-location urban landscape sketching using ink and watercolors. She works quickly in pocket sketchbooks which enables her to capture fleeting and unexpected moments as they happen. She favors expressive linework accentuated with simple, brilliant colors and touches of narrative context.

Kristy Kún uses the irreversible bonding of wool fibers tangled and tightened into dense textiles to make handmade felt. Encompassing materials and techniques from cross disciplines, Kún’s sculpted forms harness the strength of the most delicate fibers in juxtaposition against stronger ‘elemental’ undercurrents.

Enjoy nibbles and wine, learn about both artists’ inspirations and styles, and listen to live music on the Terrace.

Please RSVP by September 27, 2017 to rsvp@lansugarden.org.
