Press release

City Gallery is presenting High/Line, an exhibit of new work by Jane Harris and Sheila Kaczmarek from Apr. 28 through May 29. There will be an artists' reception with live music on Sat., May 14 from 2—5 p.m.

The lines that Jane Harris uses in her work meander like streets, pushing and pulling slightly off grid. The streets and parks of Brooklyn are still her internal map. Using silk aquatint process with water-based inks has brought brighter color to her work.

In contrast, the inspiration for Sheila Kaczmarek's clay sculptures were the pillars of the Jain temples in Ranakptur, India. These "towers" attempt to give the impression of a struggle to reach up towards the sky. The works on paper relate to and echo the tower theme.
