First Friday: AITA Presents Walter and Margaux Kent Featuring Darla Jackson
A collection of woodworking, photography, paintings, sculpture, and found objects will transform the Art in the Age Store into a bizarre and beautiful backwoods apothecary. This trio is no stranger to the delicate balance between light and dark that this particular time of year evokes. In their subtle strayings, they illuminate the various features of darkness that have been concealed by light, and attempt to access, dangerously, a path that leads to oneself.
Margaux and Walter Kent, creators of the online ateliers “The Black Spot Books” and “Peg and Awl,” are known for their hand-bound journals and treasures for the home and garden. Wrought from reclaimed leather and old growth wood, each piece bares the marks of a life past. Margaux and Walter, photographer and painter respectively, have exhibited widely in the Philadelphia area and are looking forward to the birth of their second child.
The Kent’s display will also incorporate the work of Darla Jackson, a Philadelphia-based sculptor and designer. Jackson’s sculptures of recognizable wild animals in uncharacteristic settings invite subversive interpretations of seemingly normal visual landscapes.
Join us for the opening First Friday reception at the Art in the Age Store.
