“Journeys” A Special Thank You From Hurricane Katrina Survivors

Friday, July 31, 2015

“Journeys” A Special Thank You From Hurricane Katrina Survivors photo

Northrup King Building is hosting a very special event to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the devastating storm that struck the Mississippi Gulf Coast in 2005. The worst natural disaster to ever befall the United States, the storm took the lives of 1833 people, and displaced thousands more. Many of those survivors were aided in their recovery by Minnesotans.

“Journeys” is an exhibition of art by three Mississippi Gulf Coast artists who lost their homes and studios in the storm. Assisted by the efforts of many Minnesota volunteers, the artists were able to rebuild their homes and resume their careers. The exhibition was conceived as a way of not only expressing thanks to the many volunteers who came to the aide of storm survivors, but also serves as an example of what can happen when people reach out to their fellows.

A documentary that follows the artists over the past decade has also been recently produced, and will be screened during the opening reception.

OPENING RECEPTION

5-9PM

Featured Artist

Rita Dungey

Rita Dungey

At the heart of Rita’s work is a need to explore and discover. Freedom to create with unlimited possibilities and the bonus element of discovery fuel her creative process and reflect a liberating personal journey of freedom, intuition, and optimism. Her non-representational painting and abstract mixed media are a combination of bold forms, colors, and textures that are expressively combined to created lush, free, and energetic images.

She starts a painting with complete openness and trust in the natural unfolding process of each piece. She paints with acrylic paints, but also uses a variety of materials and methods to build up images, creating texture and energizing the forms and surfaces by layering paint, incising, sanding, and sometimes re-building, as images are drawn out and materialized. The stirring, churning, and flow bring seemingly unrelated components to cross paths, interact, and organize resulting in works that are infused with joy, spontaneity, and positive life force.
