|Some of the artists of Night Job (left to right): Jamie Knowlton, Heidi Kleder and Kat Salvaggio.|
is a collective show featuring artists who represent a young, working-class, art class perspective united by a sensibility that combines urban grit, an ineffable dream-like quality and an almost haunted yearning for connection with the essence of life. The work also embodies a blend of seeming thematic opposites that complement one another.
The artists include Heidi Kleder, Kit Ramsey, Kat Salvaggio, Jamie Knowlton and Tacoma Washington, and their media range from pen and ink drawings tomixed media painting to Intaglio prints and photographs. Night Job opens at Europa Coffee House at 7 p.m. on September 4 with a free taco bar; it runs through the month. We sat down with Knowlton, who set up the show, Kleder and Salvaggio to discuss what the name represents and why Knowlton wanted to include artists who rarely display their work.More »
