Conjoined Boys in Rabbit Suit by Kathie Olivas

Kathie Olivas’s solo exhibition,  The Scavengers, is currently at Orbit Gallery in Edgewater, New Jersey through October 3rd.  There’s a reception with the artist on Saturday October 1st from 7 to 11 PM.  Cocktails, Chapagne and Hor’s D’ourves will be served.  In addition, 25 special edition Circus Punks will be available at the reception.  At the end of the evening, there will also  be a charity raffle of Kathie’s The Believers painting with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the Red Cross Hurricane Katrina relief fund. Patrons will receive one entry per dollar donated.  RSVP for the reception by September 29th (201.945.8900).  For transporation, you can take the New York Waterway Ferry or Path Train from New York City. Orbit Gallery will provide limo service from Port Imperial Ferry in West New York and Hoboken’s Path Train on October 1st from 6:30 till 11:30 pm. To see what’s available,  you can explore an online catalog of show pieces.

Kathie Olivas’ Misery Children series of paintings is charming and distrubing at the same time.  The bright color pallette is welcoming yet the depictions of children are often chilling upon a deeper consideration.  I’ve only recently become familiar with her work but in my personal opinion her work is incredible and deserves much more attention.
