• Influenced directly by Frida Kahlo, Katrina Atkinson has had a long established passion for the emotional and technical aspects of Kahlo's work, as well as her use of colour and vibrancy which is commonly expressed within the artwork of this unique 20th Century female Mexican artist.
• Katrina's latest collection of 'Functional Art' inspired by Kahlo, includes interior and exterior; wall hangings, rugs, cushions and chairs etc. combining women's traditional crafts - rag-rugging, crochet and embroidery, together with fine art - painting and collage, creating a body of 'useable' contemporary art.
• This exhibition will be held over the period of 'The DAY of the DEAD' usually celebrated over three nights at the end of October, which is one of Mexico's religious traditions, with skulls, skeletons and marigolds frequently represented in Kahlo's work.
• Katrina, whose education has taken several steps having earned her HND integrated art & design at UWE Bristol, and BA fine art at Exeter, is now embarking on her Masters in Art Psychotherapy at Newport University.
• Katrina, a single parent, is a great believer that everyone can benefit from creativity; she works within a variety of art based charities and community projects with all ages, from schools through to retirement homes. Some projects have involved a whole school of 300 children each making a ceramic tile, others are as small as one to one tuition.
• Music, food and drink in true Mexican style will be served during the reception, with rhythm provided by the locally based Cuban Salsa band: K'CHEVERE HYPERLINK "http://www.kchevere.co.uk" www.kchevere.co.uk Sunday 30th October - 12noon-5pm (tickets still available) email HYPERLINK "http://firstname.lastname@example.org" email@example.com to get yours or go to: HYPERLINK "http://www.fridakahloinspiredart.co.uk" www.fridakahloinspiredart.co.uk
