November 1 to December 10
Student Services Gallery
The work of Portland artist Katherine Ace will be shown in the Student Services building gallery Nov. 1 to Dec. 10, 2004. The community is invited to attend a gallery talk with the artist on Monday, November 8, 12 to 1 p.m. in the Student Services building, room 130.
Ace works primarily in alkyd/oil on canvas and teaches figure painting at Portland State University. Her work has been exhibited nationally in solo and group exhibitions and can be found on numerous publications and in a variety of collections.
Ace is described as having an ongoing fascination with both figurative and still-life painting. Her work postulates and subverts realism, has a feminist orientation and is rich in color, depth and meaning. The artist describes contradiction as the main thematic connection in her work and notes, "I am interested in the role of dark feelings, thoughts and states of mind in the process of transformation. I am drawn to fire beneath reserve."
