QUIRK gallery and the pink grouse Charlottesville 

 

Enjoy a 3-course dinner with wine pairing inspired by Kiki Slaughter's works currently displayed at Quirk Gallery Charlottesville. Complimentary sparkling wine will be served in the gallery at 5 pm, and dinner will begin at 6:30. Kiki will share some stories and insights about her career as an artist. The dishes served are inspired by Kiki's unique process and evoke her signature use of mark-making and color. Vegetarian options will be available.

 

Kiki Slaughter is a painter best known for her expansive color field compositions that explore the fundamental process of painting. She studied at The University of Virginia and holds a BA in painting and Art History and an MA in Contemporary Art History from The Sotheby’s Institute, London.

Slaughter’s work hinges on the act of intuitive mark-making and draws on the rich dual-pronged visual history of color theory and action painting. “Twenty Years marks the 20th anniversary of my first solo show in 2004, held just across the street, and celebrates a full-circle moment in my career as a painter.”

Join us on Saturday, June 1st for a pop-up shop event with Dottir, a woman-and-mother-owned online shop based in Richmond, Virginia! The pop-up event will be held in the Main Gallery from 10am - 3pm, featuring Dottir’s unique collection of clothing, jewelry, and accessories!


We are Dottir: Dottir is inspired by the natural beauty of Iceland and the strength and fortitude of its women. In Iceland, girls are given surnames based on their mother or father’s first name combined with the word “dóttir”. Iceland is also more advanced than most countries in the world when it comes to gender equality. When you visit Iceland, you’re surrounded by natural beauty and strong women and you can’t help but be moved.
