I’ve selected my work, “MEMORIA” a drypoint intaglio unique print on Fabriano paper 19.25” x 25” to be exhibited in  “Open to Interpretation” a MarinMOCA Exhibition, January 5, 2019 - February 24, 2019 with an Opening Reception, January 5, 5:00 - 7:00pm. The exhibit intends to open the way for an original and rich dialogue to unfold between artist and viewer. ”To paint is not to copy the object slavishly, it is to grasp a harmony among many relationships.” (Paul Cezanne). There are countless ways to express ideas through art, and the interpretation of a work of art can evoke many differing points of view.

"ALL" by Kathryn Cirincione was selected by the jury for  "Finding Your Voice," in Baton Rouge,

Kelwood Contemporary Art, Baton Rouge, Louisiana: "Finding Your Voice" September 6 - October 14, 2018

Artists have used their voice to shed light on social, historical and political issues throughout history - Daumier providing commentary on the politics of 19C France; Picasso’s Guernica bringing attention to the horrors of the Spanish Civil War; Harlem Renaissance artists shedding light on the African American Experience; WPA artists illustrating life in the Great Depression and the plight of the poor.

We are living in a period where it seems like people are finding their voice, and yet there is no conversation.  The dialogue between disparate voices is not happening. Art can provide an opening to the discourse by showing issues through a new perspective and telling stories through a voice you hadn’t yet heard.  

My voice and my perspective as an artist dealing with  civil rights and the internment of Japanese American Citizens was selected by the jury for this competition.  ALL is a 15” x 10.75” pigment ink image on 17" x 11" archival paper from a mixed media lithograph; printed by the artist in a limited edition of 50, signed and numbered with certification of authenticity. 

The intention with this show is to give voice to the full spectrum of stories and experience.  Through a series of gallery talks and community discussions it is hoped that a dialogue will start to promote understanding.
