Wally Workman Gallery presents Kathryn Polk: "Narrative Lithographs" opening reception
Wally Workman Gallery presents its second solo show with printmaker Kathryn Polk, "Narrative Lithographs." Polk grew up in the South during the 1950s and '60s when expectations for women to achieve a position other than domestic caregiver was highly unusual, and often frowned upon. This had a lasting effect on Polk and her lithographs are narratives that emerged from memories of this era. Each piece contains dozens of her unique symbols, for example: flames, needle and thread, logs, prickly pear pads, helicopter seeds, tattoos and spilled milk. Polk has created a visual language for the Southern female experience and one that reminds us of how far we have come and how far we have yet to go.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 2.
