Fort Worth, Texas—June 1, 2013— NEW EXHIBITIONS OPEN AT WOCA PROJECTS ON JUNE 21ST

 

WoCA Projects will open two solo exhibitions on Friday, June 21st: The Exchange: A Portfolio By Bump It Mafia, which features the group portfolio of Bump It Mafia! a collective of modern women celebrating womanhood through printmaking and highlighting the importance of camaraderie and community not just amongst women, but amongst all artists of all backgrounds. Bump It Mafia’s portfolio has toured both nationally and internationally, and while not a stranger to the DFW area ( featuring shows in both Denton and Dallas), the upcoming show marks the group’s first portoflio viewing in the city of Fort Worth. Participating artists include: Emily Arthur, Heather Bryant, Nicola Buffa, Lisette Chavez, Ana Hurtado-Gonzales, Carrie Lingscheit, Emmy Lingscheit, Rachael Madeline, Kristine Joy Mallari, Saegan Moran, Meghan O’Connor, Kathryn Polk, Coco Rico, Jessica Robles, Andrea Rogers, Linda Santana, Jenny Schmid, Katy Seals, and Cat Snapp. 

 

Epitome and the UnConcept: Sculptures by Hiroko Kubo is a solo exhibition featuring sculptures by Japanese artist Hiroko Kubo. Kubo’s work translates the spheres of unconceptualized personal experiences into sculptural forms that recount emotions, memories, and perceptions. Kubo describes her sculptures as “’frames’ of the elusive subject, that aim to extract the essence of my experiences” while “leav[ing] space for the thoughts, images, and sensations of the viewers.”

 

Born in Hiroshima, Japan, Hiroko Kubo graduated from Hiroshima City University with a BFA in sculpture (2009), and received her MFA from Texas Christian University in 2013. Kubo is a recipient of the Hiroshima International Cultural Foundation, and her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows both in Japan and in the United States. Kubo was recently selected as an exhibiting artist for the 2013 Texas Biennale from September 5-November 9th at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas. 

Both exhibitions will open on Friday, June 21st  from 6-8 p.m. and will run through July 20th, 2013 Come out and enjoy the opening reception, which will feature light refreshments and drinks. WoCA Projects is free and open to the public.
