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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
