Kristen Kucer’s time in Mexico provides content for solo show
Theo Ganz Studio will present Archives From Villa de García to Beacon, a solo exhibition of the work of Kirsten Kucer. The opening reception for the artist will take place on Saturday, April 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. The show runs through May 5.
Kucer taught at the Universidad de Monterrey and lived in Villa de García, Nuevo León, Mexico from 2001 to 2005. When she returned to the U.S. and moved to Beacon in 2005, she began working in an intimate 90-square-foot studio and concentrated on drawing. “I started pulling from memory and my photographic archives of my time spent in Mexico as a way to begin drawing,” Kucer wrote. “I thought my primary concern in this work was about space and chance, but as I continued drawing it was clear that it was equally as much about my experiences in Villa de García.”
Theo Ganz Studio is located at 149 Main St. in Beacon. For more information, call 917-318-2239 or visit theoganzstudio.com.
