Figure in Space
by Kit Burnham-Ashman

April 2-25, 2015

Kit Burnham-Ashman will be presenting new work in the Cooperative Gallery 213's April Exhibition. The exhibit will begin with an Artists' Reception open to the public on Thursday, April 2nd from 6-8 PM. A First Friday reception will follow on April 3rd from 3-9 PM. The exhibit will run through the 25th of April. On Thursday, April 16th at 7 PM, the gallery will hold a Third Thursday artist's talk open to the public entitled "About the Figure¯..."

Every Sunday for the past year, Kit Burnham-Ashman has started the day with a good breakfast and then spent a good portion of the day painting and drawing from a live model. Her "Sunday Mornings" a series of charcoal drawings of the figure, will be part of her upcoming exhibit entitled Figure in Space.

In this new work Ashman will try something new. "In the past,"¯ she says, "I have portrayed people close to me, but in this work I am creating the generic figure and how it takes up its world of space, its weight, its mass." She is also including wood cuts inspired by Kate Kolwitz.

Having studied with many regional artists and teachers, she has also exhibited her work at Windsor Whip Works, Lost Dog and the Rude and Bold Show.
