About

Established in 1994, Kim Foster Gallery promotes a select group of contemporary artists. The gallery is focused on enabling these artists to explore and evolve in significantly different ways, but with remarkable coherence within the gallery’s affinity towards unconventional work. These artists deviate from traditional mediums and instead have developed entirely new methods and sophisticated techniques.

Alchemist's Dream, 2017. -  Kathleen  Mulcahy

Kathleen Mulcahy Alchemist's Dream, 2017.
Art becomes more necessary in a fast paced, social media and tech driven world. It can mean something more to a viewer when it speaks to one’s inner self. This is where we find the place to contemplate, reflect and recharge. Art has the power to rivet us to that moment, whether visual or through sound. When someone says – “that moved me to tears,” or “this work has replaced the air in the room,” or “it took my breath away,” they are speaking of the poetics of space. Art is about connecting the plane of beauty to the sublime. It is the window to that other dimension of stillness, slowing down between looking and experiencing. Art made with glass has that power. This work is the embodiment of all that came before, the trial and error, the techniques or invention, as it moves toward the idea of tranquility fully formed.

    Detailed Description : Her seductive totem-like pieces are almost decadent in their ornate detail. The drawn patterns allude to hybrid botanical and human anatomical forms in a stream of consciousness with calligraphic drawing printed on Plexiglas.

    Detailed Description : Will Kurtz is an anomaly in the NY art scene who uses standard “classic” techniques to mold, form and breathe life into his human and animal subjects. Newspaper, wood, wire, plaster gauze, tape and glue are magically transformed like alchemy into working people. “Mans” best friend appears often in his art, with their masters or in small groups, doing what dogs do, acting as dogs act. You never know what will appear around a corner or in a separate space.

  • Kathleen Mulcahy  (+)

    Biography : With a Masters of Fine Arts in glass sculpture and 3D design from Alfred University, Mulcahy directed the glass studio programs at Bowling Green State University in Ohio and Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. She then went on to develop the Pittsburgh Glass Center, one of the top public access glass studios in the nation for which she was honored as Pennsylvania Artist of the Year in 2013. During this time, her own work — installation pieces, cast glass, blown glass objects — evolved into unique and poignant statements. Her glass works are in many public and private collections including the American Craft Museum, The Corning Museum of Glass, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Renwick Galleries of the Smithsonian Institution and The Westmoreland Museum of Art. Mulcahy has won numerous awards including grants from the NEA, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and a Fulbright.

    Detailed Description : Kathleen Mulcahy’s glass panels imitate the look of liquid elements in nature. But there is nothing of nature’s seemingly random behavior in these compositions. Instead, Mulcahy simplifies the irregularity of organic shapes to create controlled arrangements. Her glass elements may be prompted by something observed in nature, but they have been refined to a purified geometric form. Works in this series involve hot-worked and flame-worked glass shapes attached to slumped and acid etched plate glass backed by a fabricated steel sheet.
