Kate Shepherd: Stack Shack - New Gallery Exhibit at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller

Kate Shepherd: Stack Shack
September 20 to November 10, 2008

Please join us at a reception for the artist
Saturday, September 20th from 6 to 8 pm


Walk into an art gallery and it goes without saying that a “Don’t Touch” rule will be rigidly enforced. Stores are a more hands-on experience – browse, and paw the merchandise a bit as you make up your mind. Kate Shepherd had the looser rules of a retail environment in mind as she went about making work to exhibit amidst the first editions, artist’s books and other wares available at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller. She has made a group of works that come with an open invitation to violate the don’t touch rule: stackable painted block toys, wooden jigsaw puzzles, and a group of utilitarian-looking boxes that even have built-in hand holds. Alongside these are more traditional paintings, prints, and drawings that, though not designed to be handled, nonetheless have a definite tactile dimension. Visit our website for more information.
