Kathranne will conduct a happy hour gallery talk at the Residential on Thursday, June 2nd beginning at 5:30.

For the inaugural exhibition at the The Residential, they are presenting new works on paper by Kathranne Knight. “These delicate graphite drawings, innocent of erasure, push the limits of form as concept. Their apparent simplicity gives way to bewitching, studied creation. Careful looking and reflection are richly rewarded in these objects, as they reveal a patient skill that accomplishes spontaneity.” Source
