On Friday, January 20, Transitory Triad: Harmonic Alliance will open at Annesdale Park Gallery featuring the works of Olga King, Kristen Rambo, and Robert King. The gallery is located at 1290 Peabody Avenue and the opening will be held from 6 - 8 pm; the show will be on view through February 14.
A native of Moscow, Olga King began drawing as a child. Moving to Memphis over a decade ago, she focused on jewelry making and built a successful business. In recent years, she has re-discovered her talents for drawing and painting. She held a successful show of her paintings in March 2016 at Crosstown.
Native Memphian Kristen Rambo is a recent graduate of Memphis College of Art and now works in the institution’s alumni office. She continues to paint and has participated in group shows at Crosstown and Trezevant Manor.
Robert King , a native of Memphis now living in Germany, was the subject of a 2009 documentary netting Shooting Robert King which examined his 15 year career as a photojournalist in war zones around the world. In 2014 he co-authored Democratic Desert: The War in Syria and produced an accompanying documentary DVD. More recently Robert King has turned to painting as a creative outlet.
“The three painters' vibrant palettes and fluid forms are distinct and yet complementary,” said guest curator Ken Hall.
A portion of sales from the entire run of the show will benefit Church Health. “Our neighbor down the street, Church Health, offers amazing medical care to some of the neediest in our city; as they prepare to move to Crosstown, I want to show our appreciation, “ said gallery owner David Hasty.
