Kreisher's Work Exhibited in Solo Show

June 3, 2011

Dream DesertWorks by Arkell Hall Professor of Art Katharine Kreisher will be the featured pieces in a solo show opening June 8 at RioBravoFineArt Gallery in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. An opening reception will take place June 11, followed by a gallery talk by Kreisher on June 12.

Dream Desert includes images created during Kreisher's Spring 2011 sabbatical from Hartwick. As artist-in-residence at RioBravoFineArt Gallery, she has developed the new series of digital photographs, which will be displayed alongside selections from her Contemplating Peace and Unidentified Woman collections. Kreisher's newest images deal with issues related to female identity, influenced by Southwestern culture and her experience in a desert environment.

Kreisher joined the Hartwick faculty in 1982, and has taught printmaking and photography. Her work is included in permanent collections at the Albany Institute of History and Art, the University Museum at Albany, the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and the Quay School of Art in New Zealand. Her recent exhibitions include Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco, Northlight Gallery at Arizona State University, and Union College in Schenectady, NY. Most recently, her work can be seen in Threads, Pixels, Paper at the Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson, NY.
