Gallery IMA is pleased to showcase artwork by artist Kathleen Skeels in a combination of new and past ceramic and prints of porcelain tile drawings. Skeels draws on her studies on life and utilizes her imagination in these figurative formats.

Skeels describes her processes behind her works: "For me my art is an alternate world, a place of possibility and discovery where I am at my most capable and where the rules are of my own making. Through my art I make intangible worlds tangible. Art gives me a serious playground that holds me enthralled for as long as it takes to complete the work. Drawing is basic to my art, drawing in black and white and color. It’s play. It’s memory. It’s a refuge. On another level, it serves as a tool for examining the world directly, and for thinking through ideas and projects."

Skeels has taught in the Seward Park Clay Studio and was awarded the 4Culture Grant for Individual Artists Projects in July 2014.
