For this month’s Second Saturday, Freight Gallery is hosting two new exhibitions.
Inspired by both surrealism and The Wizard of Oz
, Kim Bishop presents her work from a new angle in “Paradise.” While her past work featured large woodcut prints monochromatically inked in black, Bishop has now taken the woodcuts themselves and inlaid them with a prismatic range of color, transforming them from printmaking tools into unique bas relief works. The woodcuts range in subject matter from depictions of local flora and fauna to abstract, topographical carvings that conjure a multicolored mindscape.
Blue Gato Studio’s Mark Crutsinger’s latest body of work moves away clay, his preferred modus of creation. Instead, he has eschewed the third dimension, crafting work in mixed media of ink, graphite, colored pencil, and pastel to create a whimsical final product that still communicates a harshness despite its cartoon-like imagery.
Free, Sat May 11, 7-10pm, Freight Gallery, 1913 S. Flores St., (210) 332-5005, freightsatx.com.
