An art exhibition titled “For the Senses…” featuring artists Jeff Kuratnick, of Clarks Summit, Katie Larsen-Lick, of Mountain Top and Mary-Beth Korutz-Killian, of Plymouth, will be displayed at Marquis Art and Frame, Second Floor Gallery, 122 South Main St., Wilkes-Barre, from May 10 through July 6. An opening reception will be held May 10 at the gallery from 5 to 8 p.m.
Kuratnick’s work exists in the balance between sculpture and function. Coming from a family of stonemasons, experiencing their materials, ultimately led Kuratnick to his creative development. As a ceramic artist with a focus on creating fluid forms, intuitive mark-making has led motion and rhythm to visually command his work, along with his obligation to allow the ebb and flow of his personal experiences to physically manifest.
For Lick, the simplicity and ease of digital format has made photography much more interesting and has enhanced the uniqueness of her work. It allows her to express her creativity through the eye of the camera and to show others, her eclectic views of the world.
Korutz- Killian is an educator, holistic healer, painter, jeweler, fiber artist and world traveler. She invests her mixed-medium visual creations with a masterful authority that simultaneously inhabits the corporeal while addressing the spiritual. Informed by and infused with a sense of wonder and esoteric knowledge harvested through the years from her experiences, Korutz-Killian’s works translate these experiences into a tactilely disparate array of imagery.
