Three Women Artists
Reception: Dec 20, 6-9pm
“Works by Three Women Artists,” a group exhibition by Judi Bradford, Tyler Buckheim, and Marta Byer White, will be on view in TSKW’s Space 2 from December 20-January 11. The show includes some of the most compelling recent work by each artist created in a variety of unique mediums.
Judi Bradford has pulled technology into her drawing practice by working with Brushes, an app which allows artists to create works of art by finger painting on touchscreen displays. Working from a life drawing model, she discovered she could create drawings as sensitive as those rendered in charcoal, with the added benefit of versatile color.
Tyler Buckheim combines several wet or dry painting and drawing mediums with collage elements to explore the grey space between realism, surrealism, and expressionism. Her work only hints at a narrative direction, and focuses on objects and figures in ambiguous or confusing spaces. The resulting imagery is as powerful viscerally as it is visually.
Marta Byer White creates art boxes, three dimensional objects which explore the landscape and lost memories of her youth. Byer White has owned and managed a “Great Gatsby style hotel” in Long Island for many years, and has an extensive theatrical resume which includes directing and set design. Her unique personal history, combined with years of study with Roberta Marks, have given Byer White a rare talent in masterfully creating dreamlike environments which incorporate dusty, fragile, furnishings and broken doll parts.
During the reception, the public is also invited to visit the TSKW residency cottages, where the artists in residence will showcase their current projects. December residency artists include Bonnie Burkee, a printmaker and photographer from Lake Montezuma, Arizona, Matthew Terrell, a writer and new media artist from Atlanta, Georgia, and Alice Pedroletti, a photographer and performance and video artist from Milano, Italy.
