Popup Art: Kristen Michael at Gilbert Cellars


Location: Downtown Yakima
5 North Front Street

5pm-7pm - The opening reception will be hosted in the Cellar Gallery below our downtown tasting room. Artwork by Kristen Michael. This exhibit will remain on view through the summer.

About the artist: Kristen Michael, also known as Kaiten, is an artist from Yakima, Washington. In her paintings on wood, Kristen explores the constant battle between humanity and nature. The paintings combine natural elements with humor and violence; a strange combination at first yet it works really well. I think that what makes art is that it has to make you feel something, art has to make you think or feel something. Kristen succeeds in both with her pieces: at first you feel a warm feeling because of the natural elements: the beautiful animals and the textured, wooden background of the paintings. Yet if you look again you see other elements, human elements, that destroy the magic of nature and will make you think of what we are doing to animals and this planet.
