Linda Warren Projects invites you to the gallery for an artist talk by gallery artist Kim Piotrowski. The Chicago-based artist’s debut exhibition, “Catch and Release,” marks a new shift in Piotrowski’s practice: a step away from representational references, instead looking inward for aesthetic and conceptual stimuli. In addition to more conventional paintings on panel and framed works on paper, Piotrowski has created a 43-foot, site specific painting directly onto a gallery wall –only the second time the artist has attempted such a feat.
About the artist:
Kim Piotrowski’s art has been featured in such venues as Grolle:Pass:Projects in Wuppertal, and Galerie oqbo in Berlin, Germany; Marcia Wood Gallery, in Atlanta, GA; DiverseWorks in Houston, TX; and 65Grand, the Hyde Park Art Center, the National Veterans Art Museum and the Union League Club in Chicago. Piotrowski is the recipient of such prestigious honors as the Artadia Grant, the Illinois Arts Council Visual Artist Grant, Artist in Residence at Yaddo, Ox-Bow and the Ragdale Residency in Lake Forest, IL. Piotrowski received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and this is her first exhibition with Linda Warren Projects.
