Gina Phillips Opening Reception

September 18, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free and open to the public

Join artist Gina Phillips as she gives a personal tour of her exhibition, A Thirsty Switch Still Quivers for Me, opening in the lobby of 21c Louisville.

About the exhibition: A Thirsty Switch Still Quivers for Me is a site-specific installation at 21c Louisville featuring new works by Gina Phillips, as well as a selection of paintings, sculptures, fiber-based works, and mixed media from five of the artist’s earlier series, including Stronger than Dirt, I Was Trying Hard to Think About Sweet Things, Friends and Neighbors, Life Lasagna, Heroes and Villains, and The Call of the Alluvial Empire.

About the Artist: Born in Madison County, Kentucky, Gina Phillips is inspired by the imagery, narratives, and characters of both her native Kentucky and her current home in New Orleans. This five-year survey exhibition includes painting, sculpture, and her signature fabric and thread pieces, which Phillips creates in a wide range of scales and subject matter. Applying craft-based technique to a compelling exploration of both personal experience and art historical tradition, Phillips transforms portraiture, landscape, and assemblage art to offer an immersive, multi-media exploration of the people and places that shape this artist’s visionary practice.
