Black And Yellow + Kulture High Opening June 6 says
Join us for the openings of two new exhibitions.
Opening reception: June 6 6-9pm
Exhibitions run: June 6- July 18

Kelly O’Brien’s exhibition, Kulture High, explores a tongue and cheek examination of how contemporary art and pop culture compete and complement one another. The pieces consist of abstracted assemblage, sculpture and paintings that are critically gazed upon by traditional oil portraiture of cats, a satirical commentary on the powerful cultural influencer of Internet cat memes.

Kelly O’Brien is originally from Buffalo, NY. She received her BFA in Sculpture at Buffalo State College and her MFA in Sculpture at Georgia State University in Atlanta. She currently lives and works out of Minneapolis, MN, and is Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, as well as acting as a MFA mentor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Donald Morgan’s exhibition, Black and Yellow, will combine two complimentary bodies of work. His concepts are generated from reworking narrative elements from books, a loose process of adapting and re-territorializing text into sculptures and paintings. The works are emblematic of Morgan’s hard edge, geometric aesthetic while incorporating aspects of visual dissonance, the familiar becoming unfamiliar.

Morgan received his MFA from Art Center College of Design in 2001. Morgan was a finalist for the Portland Art Museum’s 2013 Contemporary Northwest Art Awards. He is member and Co-founder of Ditch Projects, an artist run exhibition space in Springfield, Oregon, and Co-Founder of the Coast Time artist residency in Lincoln City, Oregon. He is represented by Fourteen30 Contemporary in Portland. Donald Morgan lives and works in Eugene, Oregon, where he is Assistant Professor at the University of Oregon.
