The Springfield Arts Commission is pleased to present an exhibition of work by artist Kaari Selven.
Selven discovered drawing at the age of 18 as a positive outlet for built-up emotions and self-expression. With a keen eye for patterns, Selven explores the intersection of organic and geometric lines to create flowing shapes and figures. The repeating of patterns and lines to form figures or to create a composition, termed “zentangle”, has characterized Selven’s work since her earliest drawings. More recently, Selven’s work has begun to examine themes of nature and exploration as well as human anatomy and its relationship to bodily function and agency.
Located on a ninety-foot wall just outside the entrance to the Springfield library, City Hall Gallery is seen by approximately 3,700 visitors each month. Since 1989, the gallery has featured monthly shows by regional artists chosen by the Springfield Arts Commission. The Commission issues a public call to artists each year.
The show will run from January 1-31, 2019 with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m., Friday, January 11. The reception is open to the public and will also feature light refreshments and live music by Robert Meade.
