Mabee Library Artist Series

7:00 pm – 8:00 pm | Mabee Learning Commons, 1st floor

A solo exhibition by Kate Fromm, presents a series of works that reflect on the influence of her professors, peers and friends during the past four years at The Kansas City Art Institute. Brimming with color, her large scale works on silk panels combine intuitive mark making and employ a less traditional approach to shibori resist dyeing. Fromm relates these stratified compositions to her engagement with the learning process where she considers time, memory and relationships. In the long term, four years is a blip in time, but in the short term it can be a time of unimaginable growth and expansion. Reflecting on her last four years, Fromm’s works consider her influences and poses a question back to the viewer. Who makes you? Presented in partnership with the Department of Arts & Humanities.
