Press Release:

Gallery Molly Krom is pleased to present Embossed, a group series curated by DUSK Series & Editions, featuring the work of 15 artists. With a firm belief in the collaboration and community building between gallery and artist, Gallery Molly Krom is transformed into an artist run space from July 9th to Aug 16th. Gallery Molly Krom’s programing has a focus on work on paper and this transfer of space represents a continuum in gallery’s aesthetics and beliefs. Both the gallery and Dusk are united by common aesthetic sensibilities and believe in promoting the work of artists with diverse history and exposure.

DUSK Series & Editions is a print studio & gallery, curated and operated by artist Ky Anderson. Embossed started in the DUSK print studio by embossing paper in a consistent pattern. Designed and embossed by Ky Anderson the pattern was intended to complement each artist work while still challenging them, but subtle enough to not dominate the work. Some embraced the pattern, some found it wildly inspiring, some wanted more paper, some ignored the pattern while some repeated it, some struggled and some rejected the surface altogether and pulled out of the show. This series is a result of a group of artists with a knowledge and respect of one another’s work. While there are multiple approaches to the work they’ve allowed themselves to be further connected to one another by engaging in the consistency of the size and texture as their starting point.

Embossed artists include Shane Drinkwater, Brian Edmonds, Sarajo Frieden, Benjamin Gardner, Yifat Gat, J Grabowski, Molly Herman, Michael Krueger, Emily Noelle Lambert, Meg Lipke, Jason Rohlf, Mason Saltarrelli, Ward Schumaker, Vicki Sher and Debra Smith.

Please join us for the opening on July 9th from 6-8 pm. Opening the same night at the gallery next door, Frosch & Portmann, is Cosmicomics curated by Embossed artist Vicki Sher. Save the date and join us for a festive summer evening celebrating the work of many artists and two galleries who support the collaborative spirit of the artist gallery relationship.
