JM Gallery was abuzz on the evening of November 7, as art collectors and enthusiasts filtered in and out of the gallery for a chance to meet artists Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott. The opening reception was met with much enthusiasm, and art aficionados were intrigued by the pieces enjoyed mingling with the artists and learning about their processes and inspiration.
Viewers were especially interested in Shelley’s sculptures of household tools such as clamps, glue, and abstract shapes. Her work, almost primitive, provides unexpected perspectives towards the preconceived notions of dimension.
Similarly, Kyle’s pieces were praised for their representation of structural spaces. His artistic process is particularly interesting. After building small architectural structures, he renders them using a traditional printing process producing prints and painting of deep, velvety shadows and abstract shapes.
If you missed a chance to attend the artist reception, Kyle Hobratschk and Shelley Scott’s exhibition will be on display at JM Gallery now through December 19. The gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
