This Wednesday, December 9 at 6:30 p.m., JM Gallery, located right here in One Arts Plaza, will be hosting an artist talk with Kyle Hobratschk, a young artist who hails from Saudi Arabia but earned his BFA from SMU in 2011. The exhibition he shares with fellow artist, Shelly Scott, called Dimensions has already received accolades from PaperCity Magazine editor, Patricia Mora
Kyle will be discussing his unique creative process which begins with the construction of small, imaginary architectural models inspired by his affinity for historical monuments, roof tops, silos and even headstones. Next, each structure is rendered using aquatint, a print process that produces deep, velvety tones and shadows. Each model is represented in several different pieces using a variety of angles and perspectives. When Kyle is not working at his studio in Bishop Arts, he is often in Corsicana where he offers students 6-week fellowship opportunities where they can reside and hone their craft at his newly renovated 100West Corsicana studio.
You don’t want to miss Kyle’s unique series! Join us tomorrow evening for a glass of wine, an intimate gathering with the artist and to learn more about his fascinating process. And remember, all pieces on display at JM Gallery are available for purchase. This is the perfect time to give a gorgeous piece to the art aficionados in your life, or treat yourself and your home to a beautiful oil painting or etching just in time for the holidays.
