A World Within a World

May 20 - July 2, 2005
Opening Reception / May 20, 6-8 PM

Solomon Projects is pleased to present A World Within A World, Karen Rich Beall's third solo exhibition at the gallery. The exhibition will be a series of new sculpture and sculptural installations executed in diverse media. The exhibition will be on view May 20 through July 2, 2005. Please join us for an opening reception with the artist on Friday, May 20 from 6 to 8 PM.
As the title suggests, Beall draws her inspiration from the natural world, especially in the microcosmos or "little worlds" that exist within the vastness of our global world. Ranging from hyper-realistic representation to abstractions of microscopic plant forms, A World Within a World is visually diverse. Executed in a variety of media and sizes, Beall's recurring motif for the work in this exhibition is the circle. Each piece contains a circular form or element, making reference to the shape of the earth itself and the circle of life that defines all natural forms.

Karen Rich Beall has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the country, including a 2003 solo exhibition, The Dark Side of Beauty, at the Albany Museum of Art, Albany, GA (catalogue) and group exhibitions at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, WI, Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA,and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Atlanta, GA. Beall was recently honored with a residency at Sculpture Space, Utica, NY and was a nominee for the City of Atlanta Bureau of Cultural Affairs 2002 Emerging Artist Award and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award. Karen Rich Beall received her MFA from the University of Tennessee and her BFA from the University of Florida. This is Beall's third solo exhibition with Solomon Projects.
