“Hidden Seeking”

Reception with the artist:

Sat., July 7th 5-9PM

Exhibition On View: July 7th – July 28th in our project room

Kelly Allen's tightly rendered paintings can most succinctly be described as symbolic portraits of wild animals inspired by her deep love for nature, and informed by art history, design, fashion, and discarded books and magazines.

Allen lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. She currently holds gallery representation at Thinkspace, StolenSpace Gallery in London, and Bold Hype Gallery in New York. She is a regular participant in 111 Minna's Sketch Tuesday events in San Francisco, and exhibits her work all over the Bay Area. She recently sold a painting through Christie's Auction House, and was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 19 in 2011. This year, she is booked solid with solo and group exhibitions in New York, London, and California, and will be working on several projects with Flaunt Magazine, in addition to releasing limited edition prints through Poster Child Prints, Hi-Fructose, and Spoke Art. In addition to creating original paintings and commissions, she works as a freelance illustrator, having worked for New York Magazine and The Sunday Times UK Edition, among others. She holds an MFA in drawing from Kendall College of Art and Design and her B.A. in painting from Humboldt State University in Northern California.
