Kevin Blake

Opening Reception Friday August 4th

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

Event Hours:


Kevin Blake’s chaotic surfaces contain abstract marks, figures, graphic line drawings and worked, textured accumulations of paint. Ultimately this multiplicity of rendering styles serves to underline the intertextuality of American cultural myths inherited from print, television and film. 

 

The Chicago artist comes to Gary Indiana. Kevin Blake is an artist and writer living and working in Chicago, IL. After completing a BFA (2004) in Painting and Drawing and an MA in art education (2011) from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago, Kevin went on to receive an MFA in visual arts from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University (2014). Kevin’s debut solo exhibition opened at The Riverside Art Center in March of 2017 and followed by another solo exhibition at the University of Indiana Northwest in November of 2017. Kevin is a contributing writer for Bad at Sports, and has published numerous catalog essays, a few poems, and an artist book.
