Professional artist Kerry Rowland-Avrech’s first solo exhibition in the Pacific Northwest, “Dualities: Art/Kitsch/Nature/Humanity”, will be shown this month and next at Narthex Gallery, located at 3555 West McGraw Street, Seattle, WA 98199. Kerry’s works have been exhibited across the nation, in several art fairs, from the New York Affordable Art Fair to the most recent L.A. Art Fair, in January 2019.
The title and works of this exhibition, scheduled for May 11th to June 27th, calmly show how the artists’ work is in constant flux–in styles, mediums and imagery. Kerry has placed her newest pieces alongside older, large-scale landscapes, realistic and kitschy ceramic still-life paintings, and quiet narratives of the feminine spirit. This is not the normal tact for a professional artist to take, especially in Seattle, where time and expense demand a type of hyper-branding. As the title hints, the exhibition marries retrospection with current visions, displaying a medley of periods to illustrate the journey of Kerry’s artistic career.
