Artist bio//statement:

I've been raised into the art world since I was a child. My grandmother is a porcelain doll artist, my mother did graphic design and occasional illustration, my siblings all have talent in the arts, even if they don't want to believe it themselves. I have been the only one in my family to formally pursue art as a career via Pratt. I started out as a fine artist but I decided to take the design route with Communications Design - Art Direction as my major at Pratt. I fell in love with aesthetic organization in the digital sense, but realized it carries over to my illustrative work as well.

"Artist Statement-ish": My style of working tends to be organic, mainly because of my lack of confidence in recreating a sketch directly. I don't always have an exact blueprint in my mind of what I want to create, just an idea, or inspiration. I am not capable of drawing exactly what I see in my mind, and when I try it's disappointing. I'm always happier creating pieces that arise from just putting the pen to the paper, and building upon that. I sometimes start a piece with having a general inspiration in which i do a lot of research, looking at things to incorporate, or expand on once i get started. That is usually as far as I get with pre-planning an illustration.
I find myself documenting the process of art just as much as the piece itself, I like being able to look back at the different stages of my work, to see how I came to the choices i made each step of the way. This year I want to start focusing on pieces that visually translate that thought… sort of like my visual journey through a choose your own adventure book; the book being the finished product of whatever I created.

Kurt Brownell Opening and Founders Beer Social

We are really excited and honored to host this next Artist. Here is a short Bio.

Kurt Brownell has been a part of the Rochester photo landscape for almost twenty years. Following an immersive four years at RIT, he earned a degree in photographic illustration. From there, Kurt went on to start his own commercial photography studio, and has produced imagery for many regional and national clients, large and small. While his advertising projects range from lifestyle images of people and food to architecture to product photography, his artistic passions lie with creating panoramic landscapes and natural shots of food. This show is a curation of select images created during the past years of producing agricultural imagery for clients such as Wegmans, Birdseye, Constellation and countless local restaurants and editorial venues, as well imagery produced for cookbooks. Kurt's studio is located downtown in the Cascade District, and he lives in Victor with his wife Liz and two children, Chloe and Luke. And everyone always eats their vegetables.

We will also be hosting a Founders beer social & serving our delicious $2 fantasy tacos!
