ODETTA is pleased to present a work in progress by gallery artist Kurt Steger. Following their successful year with his monumental project, Scribing the Void, Kurt became ODETTA’s first represented artist. As he begins to plan his second solo exhibition at ODETTA, they offered him the gallery during show change to explore new ideas and exhale for a moment. Pending is an ephemeral work that has the potential to become something more significant. This is a time to meet the artist and discuss these new ideas and materials as he ponders depicting mass and cause and effect relationships. ODETTA will be used as his temporary studio during Armory Arts Week.
