Of Other Places

Of Other Places

JUNE 29 - JULY 28 2013

SARDINE is pleased to present a summer group show titled Of Other Places featuring work by Kate Harding, Sarah Heinemann, JJ Manford and Kelly McRaven. The show opens Saturday, June 29 from 6 to 9pm and will be up through July 28, 2013.

Whether it’s an imagined psychological space or a physical location, our lives are inherently tied to the notion of place. It plays a key role in the decisions we make, the feelings that arise, and the places we make for ourselves.  While the processes and approaches are very different, the four artists in Of Other Places bend their places into a location for emotion and transcendence. They draw you into their own private worlds, but may also illicit a connection with the universalities within.

Kate Harding is an artist living and working between Los Angeles, New York City and Missouri. Harding is a current degree candidate in the School of Visual Arts’ MFA Art Practice program (2014), and holds a BFA from Otis College (Los Angeles, CA), and an AAS from Fashion Institute of Technology (New York, NY).  Exhibitions and screenings include Echo Park Film Center, Beacon Arts Gallery, Edward Cella Art + Architecture, SeeLine, Track 16 Gallery, Circus Gallery, Los Angeles; East Central College Gallery, Union, MO; The Chelsea Hotel, 2/20 Gallery and Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, NY.
