Line, Pattern, Repeat will open Friday February 8th from 4:00-6:00pm at the new Warehouse Gallery, 4218 Walnut St., Kansas City, MO 64111. The show will run through Sunday March 3rd. Line, Pattern, Repeat showcases current work from recent Kansas City Art Institute graduates and several Urban Culture Project Residents.
Line, Pattern, Repeat aims to show viewers the inherent connections between current art trends and their fiber process counterparts. A line can be painted, created in space, or a thread pulled through fabric. Many lines together create patterns, both repeatable and abstract. Repetition historically lies at the core of all fiber processes, yet it also plays a starring role in contemporary art through repeated actions and imagery. These works represent the most relevant movements in galleries across Kansas City; yet in the context of the Fiber Department, convey a subtly different notion.
The Warehouse Gallery will host a gallery talk on February 19th from 12:00-1:00pm that will be open to the public. Some of the artists will be present to speak about their work, as well as the curators to talk about the show’s conception.
