We met Jodie, co-founder of Glovebox, just after opening this past September. When we heard about her awesome non-profit (an artist organization that enables artists to exhibit their work in non-traditional spaces in the Boston area) we knew right away we wanted to be involved. Jodie recommended local artist Kate Castelli and all we can say is that it’s a match made in heaven! Kate’s work will be featured at our shop now through March 1st. Join us this Thursday, December 9th, for the official opening of her exhibit, Chairs.
A bit about Kate…
I earned my BFA in illustration from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. I love to wander the city, collect odd things, and listen to the Rolling Stones. And I am rarely without my sketchbook.
So what is it about chairs?
Chairs are defined by their functionality. But this functionality is only defined by the presence of people. Empty chairs imply the absence of people. In this absence I can truly see the chair. Recently I have become fascinated by the space around the chair, the void, the negative, and how that defines what I see. What is not there is still felt by what is, and so the chairs remain.
