Explore “Other Disguises” and “KC Trials and Tivoli Dreams” | Houska Gallery

Gallery Hours:
Tues-Sun, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

You’re invited to Houska Gallery’s opening reception for Metra Mitchell’s “Other Disguises” and Jenna Bauer’s “KC Trials and Tivoli Dreams.”

In Metra Mitchell’s series entitled “Other Disguises”, archetypal characters appear in many disguises within staged theatrical environments. A certain strangeness in their representation reflects the fragmentation and duplication of the ego in a dream. Unpacking this constellation of imagery carries a strong emotional charge, conjuring a complex process of transformations. This metamorphosis involves the human body- a living presence that may take on different shapes and forms. Concealed identities, masks and other disguises reflect a lack of certainty.

As for Jenna Bauer, last winter she boiled her color pallet into grids while living in Kansas City: her KC Trials. The goal with these paintings includes color theory research, storytelling and creating the essence of landscape within the canon of Grid Painting. Tivoli Dreams refers to a landscape that is out of reach — one we can only dream of: part homage to the Hudson River School crossed with the artist’s intent for exploring color theory, mark-making, process and presentation.

The reception will be closely monitored to maintain social distancing guidelines. Makes are required. A virtual tour of both exhibits will also be available on their website shortly after the opening.
