Kyle Hobratschk and 100 West
June 2015, Corsicana Texas
Kyle Hobratschk is an artist living and working in both Dallas and Corsicana, Texas where he pursues work integrating drawing, painting, printmaking and furniture. In 2012 Kyle founded the artist residency 100 West Corsicana in a retired Odd Fellows Lodge from 1898, and has spent the past three years restoring and furnishing the building alongside a small collective of artists. In Oak Cliff Kyle teaches courses in his intaglio printmaking studio located within P I C N I C Studios, and practices the medium for both personal and architecturally based commission work. Kyle grew up in Saudi Arabia and Arizona, and moved to Dallas to receive a BFA in painting from Southern Methodist University in 2011.
100 West artist residency offers a working and living space from a rotating collective of international artists while engaging the local communities of Dallas and Corsicana. Southern Intentions: Corsicana was held on the third story of the building with an accompanied show in the galleries.
Page is a local New Orleans abstract painter. She received her BFA in Painting from Southern Methodist University and has shown her work in Texas, France, New Mexico and Louisiana. She spent the last four years in New York City working as an event planner for a premiere lifestyle management firm. She recently made the move from the Big Apple to the Big Easy, a move driven by the desire to return to painting. Within the short year of being back in New Orleans, she has immersed herself wholeheartedly into the arts scene, participating in Parse Gallery's group show "Starfield" and selling work along Magazine Street. Recently she has played a large role in curating the new University Medical Center, a project that furnished the hospital with over 4,000 pieces of original and local artwork for the expansive 2.3 million square feet of hospital, 200 of which are Goss's. Page currently works and creates from her home studio located on bustling Magazine Street.
The second of our meals, Southern Intentions: New Orleans, was served on a rainy fall night in the her private apartment and studio with a show installed in her entry hall and painting studio.
