Valency Genis: Animal Masquerade

December 2018

 
 

Press Statement

ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are proud to present a solo exhibition by sculpturist, Valency Genis: Animal Masquerade

Valency Genis is and amazing sculpture artist that creates hybrid creatures of fancy. She hails from the Republic of Cascadia; she entered the world as a 12-pound baby born in Portland, Oregon, and was then raised in Seattle, Washington. She was utterly obsessed with television and video games for most of her life, so it is ironic that a summer spent on Flathead Lake, Montana in an electronics-free log cabin when she was 10 years old would change her life forever. Searching for diversions to alleviate her interminable boredom, she happened upon an old taxidermy shop. A dusty pair of "unborn beavers" caught her eye in the window display, and it forever imprinted on her naive adolescent mind. The stunning array of animals presented in the rustic store drew her in with their beauty, but she was bereaved by their demise...

The exhibition will run from December 8th 2018 through January 5th, 2019. The opening reception with the artist, live music, open studios, Stone Beer, and BK Cellars wine will be on Saturday December 8th, from 6pm -10pm.
