Niki de Saint Phalle: Freedom Would Be Mine, July 21, 2018 – September 16, 2018
Niki de Saint Phalle’s work has been recently featured at the Guggenheim Bilbao and Paris’ Le Grand Palais, and now, it’s coming to the Kimball! Come see work by one of the foremost women artists of the twentieth century.

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) passionately rebelled—against artistic trends or movements, against women’s traditional roles, against perceived limitations of what a woman artist could do. She forged her own path, one that was set in motion in 1961 by her shots heard around the world.

Saint Phalle’s provocative Shooting Paintings brought the artist international attention and set the stage for a multifaceted career imbued with the artist’s personal story as well as the socio-political issues of the era. In the ensuing years, her work took dramatic new form while engaging in lasting dichotomies: allure and aversion, naïveté and sophistication. She established her own visual language populated by voluptuous bodies and fantastical creatures, and her signature forms—appearing through decades of work across various mediums—became the site of complex meaning.

Today, Saint Phalle is most remembered for her joyful, brightly colored sculptures of women mid-frolic. Yet these celebratory figures are part of a larger dialogue. From early assemblages to monumental public art, this exhibition explores the artist’s radical redefinition of women’s roles and women’s bodies and unveils Saint Phalle’s continual quest for freedom.

Reclaimed: Mixed-media Paintings by Erin Westenskow Berrett, July 2, 2018 – September 2, 2018
Known for her highly representational oil paintings of everyday objects, Erin Westenskow Berrett has recently begun a new trajectory in her work. In the midst of experimenting with bolder strokes, larger palettes, and new subject matter, she also began experimenting with a new medium — paper.

Berrett begins her new compositions with hundreds of cut paper pieces from reclaimed magazines. As with her oil paintings, she works from dark to light and from big shapes to small. Combining “already made” textures and colors, she represents the familiar in unexpected ways, embracing just enough dissonance so that it becomes new again.

Thomas Arvid, August 25,2018 6pm
The artist will be painting all day and will culminate with his show, “Drinks Well With Others.”
Thomas Arvid possesses an unerring ability to refine a moment. In doing so he captures our wonder and has become an art world phenomenon. Art Business News (May 2003) credits him with “launching a major art trend …” with his oversized still life compositions of wine and the rituals surrounding it. Arvid astounds viewers with the intricate details of his images and with his mastery of light, depth, and reflection.

The magic of his painting is in Arvid’s ability to visualize and chronicle an entire scene beyond the frame – to tell a story of enjoyment and the good life –using lush color and adroit composition. Arvid is passionate about art and wine: a collector of both, he strives to capture the pleasure of a life well-lived on each canvas. An Atlanta resident and fresh-faced father of two young sons, the self-taught artist insists that wine should be approachable; his paintings are an embodiment of the casual way that we enjoy wine today. He is an appealing role model for a lifestyle of easy elegance and unpretentious charm.
