Opening Soon!

I am excited to announce my upcoming solo show in the Spiers Gallery at Brevard College! The exhibit will feature a variety of work from two ongoing projects, Good Neighbors and Almost Nowhere.  More words and images to follow shortly. If you are in the area, please join us at the opening reception on November 7th at 5:30 p.m. 

Brevard College will host an exhibition of recent work by Kristen Necessary from Nov. 7 to Dec. 5, at the college’s Spiers Gallery. An opening reception will be held Friday Nov. 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the gallery, which is located in Sims Art Center on the campus of Brevard College.

Necessary, a BC adjunct professor, searches to find the elegance, the humor, and the humanity in our constructed environments. With a focus on domestic space and vernacular culture, her work explores the ways people structure place and how, in turn, a place can shape a people. To create the work, Necessary uses the mediums of printmaking, drawing, and assemblage. Often merging traditional fine art techniques with the languages of decorative and craft culture, she presents her explorations in the forms of image, installation, and book.

Gallery hours for the show are 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. weekdays when the College is in session. Spiers Gallery is a contemporary 1,500 square foot gallery located within the Sims Art Center on the Brevard College campus. Exhibitions in Spiers Gallery are ongoing throughout the year and include shows by Brevard College students and faculty members, as well as visiting artists from Western North Carolina and around the country.
