CPCC Pease Gallery to Feature Works by Painter Kirsten Tradowsky

WHAT:  CPCC will host works by painter Kirsten Tradowsky March 17 through July 3 in its Pease Gallery. Kirsten Tradowsky

The San Francisco artist takes inspiration from the past, specifically the objects that represent a person’s history and placement in life. She paints objects she finds in the “for sale” section of Craigslist, capturing the quality of the seller’s photographic presentation in all its awkwardness, overexposure and strange angles. Using loose brushstrokes, she sympathetically renders these unwanted items in both rich and faded hues, delicately revealing the imperfections of time. Her artwork seeks to bring quality and validation to these objects and to painting itself.

Tradowsky received a BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art and an MFA from the California College of the Arts. She has exhibited nationally and has been featured in Wallpaper Magazine, New American Paintings Magazine, and popular art blogs Design* Sponge and The Jealous Curator.

This is her first exhibition in the Southeast.
