May Karp at IX Gallery

Opening Reception: October 13; 5pm – 8pm
As a young adult, May Karp took courses in design, composition, printmaking and drawing at the Ontario College of Art, Three Schools, and Central Tech. She also studied with Canadian artist John Gould at the YMHA. Concentrating on large abstract designs. May enjoys bright, bold colors in her work. She uses black and white when the mood demands it. Early in her career she received encouragement from the great Canadian sculptor Sorel Etrog. May pursued photography seriously and professionally after retiring from business in 1994. This will be her eighth one-woman show in Canada as well as exhibiting to two group shows in the USA. She has campaigned for a more painterly option that would broaden the scope of photography in self-expression, as well as the older and more familiar concept. She is known for her spontaneous and fearless creativity in experimenting and trying new ways of achieving her goals.
