PURSUIT OF AN ARCHETYPE: Emerging Artist Hosts Debut Solo Exhibition on the Lower East Side
In her debut solo show “Pursuit of an Archetype”, Olivia Kearney invites the viewer in on a reflection of self-discovery through her art. Her pop-up show is open to the public on Saturday, May 18th from 1pm-5pm at 198 Allen Street, New York 10002.
The artist describes her creative journey as a tool she uses to learn who she is as an individual and to connect with her community.
Olivia is a rising NYC artist whose style is a marriage between pop art and street art. Her paintings and illustrations represent the domestic urban narrative with a focus on commercial content and fine art skill. She is deeply passionate about inclusion and equality and her work has a definitive female forward voice.
The street level pop up gallery space at 198 Allen Street on the Lower East Side compliments the show’s downtown style with its stark white industrial interior and garage door front that brings the outside in.
This young artist’s previous works have been featured in the SingleFare4 group exhibition sponsored by the New York Academy of Art. Charitable contributions to creative organizations include donated work to the NYC Experience Camp’s Annual Gala, as well as volunteered time at: 8-Ball, a non-profit creative collective; Snug Harbor Fence Show, an annual outdoor show featuring local artists; Art Lab, a creative teaching facility.
