Two Opening Receptions: Wednesday, July 14 from 4pm to 8pm
Saturday, July 17 from 2pm to 6pm
In conjunction with Kristine Mays’ exhibition “Rich Soil” at The Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, Zenith Gallery will be exhibiting Kristine Mays’ extraordinary new works. Working with hard rigid wire, Kristine Mays has captured humanity — revealing strength, perseverance, and resilience. This exhibition carries themes of multiple identities, love, community, survival, life, and pain. This exhibition explores the reality of how we see ourselves and others.
Kristine Mays uses hundreds of pieces of wire to create intricate sculptures that capture the human form to reflect upon what is inward. “I create the outer shell, the exterior of a human being, but provoke you to see what’s within. Memories and the way we have loved one another far outweigh our status or possessions — and yet sometimes a simple dress or a body in motion may trigger a memory from the past, allowing us to visit that which has imprinted our lives.”
Zenith Gallery is located at 1249 Iris Street NW.
