Chicago artist Kate Pszotka showcases her collection of sculptures

Sep 29, 2014

North Central College will showcase a collection of sculptures by Chicago artist Kate Pszotka in the exhibit titled “Dual|Duel” Oct. 3 through Dec. 7.

The exhibit is free and open to the public in the College’s Schoenherr Gallery at the Fine Arts Center, 171 E. Chicago Ave., Naperville. An artist reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1; complimentary refreshments will be served.

With an ongoing fascination of the concepts of home, stability and object attachment, Pszotka examines individuals, their belongings and objects as personal iconography. Her ceramic-based, mixed media sculptures fall between stationary and wearable. When combined, these minimal works can engulf an entire space with subtleties of light, shadow and object-hood. This specific body of work has grown out of creating artwork in pairs; each piece has a counterpart within the exhibit.

Pszotka received her master of fine arts in studio art from Mills College in Oakland, Calif., and her bachelor of arts in studio art from North Central College.
