Our BOS Dallas Pick Of The Week : Remnant at Janette Kennedy Art Gallery 

Why: 2 Great Artist and all  proceeds from this event benefit the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center

Remnant’, a show of new work by Erika Jaeggli and Sonali Khatti, two Dallas-based artists. A remnant is the part that is left behind after the greater part has been used, removed, or destroyed. This idea is as applicable to fabric as it is to landscape and the passage of time. This exhibit will explore the concept of the remnant both literally and figuratively.

Jaeggli and Khatti are both mixed-media artists who work with actual and metaphorical remnants. Khatti embeds remnants of fabric and uses photos from her own past as reference. Jaeggli paints allegorical landscapes using remnants of newspapers as her canvas and uses trees as metaphors for the human condition.

The exhibition will include new large and small works by both artists. The works will be visually compelling because their styles complement each other. Khatti’s work is ethereal and dream-like with color and composition dominating the canvas; Jaeggli’s work is, by contrast, more stark. They will be unified by the theme of the remnant, giving viewers an accessible starting point from which to discuss both artists’ work individually and as a group.
