This autumn, Kate will have her first major solo exhibition in a commercial gallery when Philadelphia's F.A.N. Gallery presents KATE KERN MUNDIE: RECENT PAINTINGS, from 7 to 29 November 2008. The show will feature more than two dozen new paintings from locations in Philadelphia, Washington DC, St. Louis, London, Paris and Amsterdam.
In describing the appeal of Kate's work, Fraidoon Al-Nakib, founder and owner of F.A.N. Gallery, says, “Kate Mundie's paintings express a love of the city of Philadelphia and its quality of light and architecture. Philadelphia's buildings reflect their roots in European architecture, some of which Kate has recently explored and displays here beside their American cousins. Her use of rich, juicy color wonderfully depicts light and shadow, making the viewer aware of the visual elements in the city that are often overlooked. Kate Mundie's paintings,” says Mr. Al-Nakib, “help the viewer see what is so wonderful about the city.”
An opening reception will take place on Friday, November 7th from 5:00 to 9:00 P.M. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public. F.A.N. Gallery is located at 221 Arch Street in Philadelphia PA. For exhibition hours and information, please visit www.fanartgallery.com.
