Accola Griefen Fine Art presents Kin

Friday, October 18th, 2019

Accola Griefen Fine Art presents Kin Part I through November 22, 2019. The exhibition features artists Gina Adams, Caroline Burton, Nancy Cohen, Mary Beth Edelson, Jee Hwang and Patsy Norvell.

 ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:

“Let us speak of the beings of Earth as the “kin” they are,” writes biologist, Indigenous knowledge keeper and author of Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer. This exhibit is inspired by Kimmerer’s writing and by the concept of kinship and community between all life on the planet. The artists in KIN address our relationships with water, land, animals and with each other. Highlights of the first installation opening in September include early altered Polaroids by Feminist Artist, Mary Beth Edelson; new works in glass, paper and reclaimed materials by Nancy Cohen; “hairquilts” from the 1970’s by A.I.R. Gallery founder, Patsy Norvell; and recently completed porcelain Ancestor Medallions by Gina Adams.
