Blockfort Gallery is excited to present the work of artist Kat Francis in the month of February.

A recent Masters of Fine Arts Graduate from Columbus College of Art and Design, Kat has developed a style that is both thoughtful and playful while handling heavy social and political topics.

For this latest body of work, Kat looks to create positive natured narratives to counterbalance a negative political climate, the burden of a chronic disease, needing chemo and medication for the rest of her life, along the harsh realities of living in a quickly populating and gentrifing city. This series of work also contains kenetic aspects that add life to the narratives she tells. Kat states a need to "Find Peace in a Busy Place" as she disucsses her surrounding and the people near her to help find moments of joy and the ability to spread joy. She hopes to offer something positive in a time of frustration, tension and fear.

There will be an opening reception on February 3rd, from 6-10pm.
Additional events including meditation sessions and yoga classes will also be offered as part of the exhibition. Dates for the additional events will be announced via social media channels.
