Works By Chris Panatier and Kathleen Wilke


Dallas, April 30, 2010 — RISING Gallery announces its next exhibition featuring the works of Chris Panatier and Kathleen Wilke. The opening reception will be held April 30, 2010 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. The exhibition will run from April 30 – June 5, 2010.

“In a world that seems to be swirling with any combination of catastrophe, deception, politics, war, and uncertainty a moment of truth is like a shelter you can always rely on,” states Panatier. This statement fully explains Panatier’s most recent series titled, “Love Them Now, Always”. Panatier finds moments of “truth” human facial expressions. Like a snap shot photo, Panatier’s oil paintings on wood panel display the emotion that can be seen in a human face through a candid moment.

Like Panatier’s work Wilke’s work also focuses on capturing a moment. “My work captures unique moments that only could be achieved with the magic water creates, the model’s effortless buoyancy, and the play of light and reflection,” explains Wilke. Unlike Panatier’s work, Wilke controls some elements of the moments she creates while letting nature take over the rest. Through her lens she creates moments that seem to be lost in time and cause the viewer to want to search for a moment in their life that could relate to her photographs.

In addition to the exhibition, Chris Panatier will be creating a painting on one of the Rising Gallery walls. This painting will be a temporary installation that will grace the walls presence only during the show dates. Like a moment in time, it will appear, only to disappear almost just as quickly. Be sure to come by and see the work as it will not be permanent and will only be viewable during the show dates.

RISING Gallery is located at 4631 Insurance Lane, Dallas, Texas 75205, just off Knox between McKinney and 75. Hours are from 10am – 6pm Monday – Friday, 12pm - 6pm
