The Gallery at the Chapel + Cultural Center presents

NYC911 ® 2012 50 x 45 inches Oil and Enamel on Canvas with found objects (fire bells)

The Gallery at the Chapel + Cultural Center, in collaboration with Katherine T. Carter & Associates, is pleased to present “Never Forget” – abstract expressionist paintings and assemblage oriented paintings by Ken Kaminksi.

The exhibition consists of a stirring sequence of paintings directly responding to the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11, 2001. The paintings record in bright, architectural, iconic, expressionistic and sometimes volatile images the ‘lived experience’ of an engaged artist processing the event from initial shock to, more than a decade later, signs of personal and social recovery and perspective-taking.

On Friday, 11 September at 6:30 PM, Mr. Kaminski will talk about his inspiration and the bardic nature of his style of political art. His presentation will be followed by an artist’s tour of the exhibition and a reception until 8:30 PM. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
