The Seen Gallery Presents Ceramacist Kimberly Dean: "Figuratively Speaking"

On Display May 16 through June 24, 2009

Opening Night Reception on Saturday, May 16 from 7 to 10 p.m.
Featuring Complimentary Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres

The Seen Gallery is proud to present “Figuratively Speaking,” the newest works of renowned mixed-media artist Kimberly Dean, on display from Saturday, May 16 through Wednesday, June 24, 2009. Co-owners of The Seen Gallery, Bill Bibb and Amy Bradford, will host an opening night reception for the exhibit on Saturday, May 16 from 7 to 10 p.m., featuring complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. This event is open to the public and is the perfect opportunity to meet the artist and experience The Seen Gallery at its new location in Downtown Decatur.

"Kimberly Dean’s work is cerebral yet funny at times, poignant and with layers of creativity," says The Seen Gallery co-owner Amy Bradford. “Her mixed-media pieces incorporate hand-built clay with recycled materials and found objects.”

"I attempt to create honest and inquisitive visual speed bumps - pieces that pose questions but don't quite answer them, says Dean. “By combining my sculpted clay figures with surviving parts of discarded and forgotten objects like tools, boxes, architectural elements, I attempt to express those universal human qualities that reveal our own vulnerability and emotions.” Dean’s work has become highly collectible and in addition to The Seen Gallery, she is represented in Birmingham (AL), Charlotte (NC), and Savannah (GA).
