Second Thursday Reception: October 13 | 6 – 9 PM
On View: October 13 – November 26
“In 2009, I visited the Cy Twombly Gallery located on the grounds of the Menil Collection in Houston, Texas. Encountering the breadth, scale and intensity of this work in person profoundly impacted me, and I left with a desire to work larger and quicker–counter to my work as a jeweler. I have since expanded my studio practice to include a continuous pursuit of drawing by using a torch or branding tool directly on paper eliminating any additive medium. The resulting works possess a tautness between imagined constructions and emotive suggestion.” – Catherine Gore

Her work can be found in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Arts – Houston and numerous private collections. Gore is currently Associate Professor of Jewelry, in the Craft & Material Studies Program at The University of the Arts.
