Kathie Olivas "Haunted" Exhibit (10.20)

AFA of SoHo presents “Haunted”, an exhibition of new original paintings by multi-media artist Kathie Olivas.  “Haunted” is the artist’s most ambitious body of work to date, and explores the evolution of her well-known Misery Children, who convey our discomfort with the unknown, and address society’s insatiable desire for ‘cuteness’. A dark rendition of early American portraiture set in post apocalyptic times, Olivas’ paintings and custom toys are a satirical look at how fear affects our sense of reality.

A reception for the Artist will be held at AFA on October 20th from 6-8PM. RSVP is requested via rsvp@afanyc.com or 212.226.7374. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and runs through December. AFA is located at 54 Greene Street (on the corner of Broome) in SoHo.
