August 16th – September 21st, 2013
Opening Reception on August 16th, 6-9pm at WNYBAC
Only Everywhere features work which records times of day, places, and seasons through the documentation of shadows or light cast onto different surfaces. Although a light source such as the sun or a street lamp may be calculable or repetitious, there are always variables such as the growth of the trees casting shadows or a shift in perspective. This reveals that no moment or image is ever exactly the same as any other despite the cyclical patterns of nature. Through silkscreen prints, handmade paper, and larger installations, the work calls to mind these soft subtle moments in our lives that are at once ubiquitous and unique.

Kasia Keeley is an artist who focuses in print, handmade paper, and book arts. She received her BFA in Printmaking from SUNY at Buffalo and, in addition to her work in silkscreen printing and book arts, has been studying the process of making paper directly from plants for the last several years. She has taught a number of paper-making workshops with WNYBAC and is currently working in the Hudson Valley at the Women’s Studio Workshop. There she teaches for the WSW Art-in-Education program and works with them to grow their Art Farm – a garden space in which they produce the fibers they use for papermaking.
Keeley’s show is the fourth in the “5 x 12” series at WNYBAC, which features 5 artists over the course of twelve months; each is charged with making a print that measures 5” x 12” as well as providing a free workshop that corresponds with their exhibition.
5×12 is made possible by the New York State council on the Arts with the support of Governor Cuomo & New York State Legislature.
