Lark & Key Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Holiday Group Exhibition

Lark & Key Gallery and Boutique in Charlotte, NC, will present its Holiday Group Exhibition, on view from Dec. 1 through Jan. 29, 2011. The exhibit showcases works from current gallery artists, including new paintings by Duy Huynh, Charlotte Foust and Anna Jaap, and introduces a couple of new artists to the roster ­ Kathe Fraga and Honora Jacob.

Kathe Fraga's French Wallpaper Series, lacquered acrylic paintings on frescoed canvas, evokes the hand-painted, timeworn walls of a grand old Parisian mansion. Each piece resembles an aged decorative fresco panel adorned with birds and flowers, vines and leaves in a modern Chinoiserie style. Her art is inspired by the beauty and romance of old: vintage silky kimonos, hand-worked embroidery, lacquered boxes, blocked wallpaper and panels from years ago, distressed with age.

Time spent living in Denmark, South America, England and France can be clearly felt in her work. Fraga currently lives in Bainbridge Island, WA, in a 100 year-old stone house by the sea.

Austin, TX, based Honora Jacob began her career as an art director. Twenty years and numerous awards later, she turned her attention to a career change to follow her first passion, painting. She returned to university and completed a second Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts then a Masters in Fine Art.

Rich in color, symbols, and imagery, Jacob's artwork references a personal vocabulary of cultural, organic and historical elements to illustrate a narrative of the contemporary female psyche.of cultural, organic and historical elements to illustrate a narrative of the contemporary female psyche.
