The Art Gallery of the College of Staten Island will host the art exhibit: Kate Horsfield: Attempt to Form from Thursday, Sept, 21 to Thursday, Oct. 19 in the Gallery in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P), Room 112. The Opening Reception will be held on Sept. 21 from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.

Kate Horsfield’s paintings and ceramic sculptures are abstract and densely layered, with rich color palettes. Ever experimenting, Horsfield explores how an artwork can contain the tension experienced between one’s interior consciousness and an external world that may feel, at times, joyfully luminous, or, at other times, seems to be spinning backward. Her works can be playful and exuberant, or they can be enigmatic and elusive, as if dissolving before our eyes. Horsfield was director of the Video Data Bank at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, one of the leading distributors of artists’ videos and interviews from 1976 to 2006. The exhibit is curated by Cynthia Chris and Siona Wilson.

The Art Gallery of the College of Staten Island is proud to be the first institution to present this work to the public. The Art Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, noon to 4:00pm, or by appointment. Contact:
