As part of “Every Street Is Charlotte Street,” Kate Hackman has come back to Kansas City to guest curate Pattern Languages, a special exhibition at Greenlease Gallery showcasing some of best works from select Charlotte Street fellows. The Greenlease Gallery at Rockhurst University will host an opening reception on Friday, Sept. 8 at 6:30 PM. Opening remarks by Kate and selected artists will begin the event with a reception to follow. “The unifying theme among the works is the use of pattern as a strategy for communicating ideas and making meanings: pattern as content. In some works, the artists employ patterns to convey personal narratives, cultural histories, and/or social or political concerns. Others generate their own patterns through the recurrent use of specific materials, gestures, forms or formats, emphasizing similarities or variations amid repetition and across time.”
