Luanne E Witkowski and Denise Marika at Kingston Gallery

Kingston Gallery Artist Luanne E Witkowski is opening an exhibition next month of work created through collaboration with her friend and colleague, Denise Marika. In their individual work Witkowski and Marika have addressed social and environmental issues both directly and abstractly. After a long illness Denise Marika passed away in early July, though her passion for activism and giving voice to the silent can be fiercely seen in this last exhibition of new work. On Saturday, September 22nd at 3pm Witkowski will be joined by Marika’s long-time studio assistant Tom Fahey as they discuss the work on view and insights into the process and concepts that helped them to arrive at this place in this collaboration.
