The Hotel Congress Lobby Gallery is excited to host local artists Patricia Katchur and Joni Wallace. Visual artist Patricia and poet Joni collaborate in this installation of mixed media and poetry to illuminate the umbral. Katchur’s multi-media pieces reflect shadows and peephole glimpses of other worlds and combined with Wallace’s fragmented and overheard narratives create a richly imagistic architecture of the noir.
Patricia Katchur’s career has been a blend of art, commerce, and collaborations. She has an extensive photographic background which includes a BFA in Fine Art Photography and owning a B & W Lab in New York City and Co-Founding a series of Historic and Alternative Photographic Process Workshops. Ms. Katchur currently lives in Tucson, Arizona and is the Proprietress of Yikes Toys! Katchur is showcasing her stunning painting series Beautiful Dark which highlights disembodied voices, cadavers, and crepuscular creatures.
Joni Wallace’s most recent poetry collection, Kingdom Come Radio Show, was a finalist for the Colorado Prize, the Besmilr Brigham Prize, AROHO’s To the Lighthouse Award, and The Washington Prize and is forthcoming from Barrow Street in 2016. She is also the author of Blinking Ephemeral Valentine (Levis Prize), Four Way Books, 2011, and Redshift, Kore Press in 2016. Her poems and sound pieces most recently appeared in Boston Review, Sonora Review, Gulf Coast, Connotations Press, Booth 9, Conduit, The Volta, West Branch Wired, textsound.org, and on the website for the Poetry Society of America.
