Gallery at Carillon in Charlotte, NC, Presents Works by Kevin S. Kennedy
A sculpture exhibition by Kevin S. Kennedy will be on view at The Gallery at Carillon in Uptown Charlotte, NC, through Jan. 10, 2002.
The exhibition, entitled Conveyance will feature approximately twenty works that employ the idea of movement, immobility and equilibrium. The primary materials used are steel and various wood types which are tooled or hand worked into a finished state. The themes are drawn from Kennedy's personal experience serving both as subject matter and stimulus. He states, "The objects I create mirror my own history. I work from the familiar, what is drawn from my very center. It's difficult to say if my practice is therapy or distraction. I like to busy myself, letting my hands occupy my mind, or my mind occupy my hands. I am able to forget myself for a moment."
Kennedy received a 2001 Ucross Foundation Residency Fellowship and 2001 Edward F. Albee Foundation Residency Fellowship in Montauk, New York. Since 1996, he has been an Assistant Professor of Art at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana. This is his first one-person exhibition in NC.
