Paper, photos, acrylic, thread on paper | 2023
Blues, whites, and earthy tones soar across the canvas in the aptly named Airshow, the latest collage series by Kate Drewniak. Through the series, the artist pieces childhood memories from a day at an airshow—constructing new arrangements inspired by the dichotomy of the sky, with its constancy and seemingly endless variations in color and textures. The process of deconstructing and reorganizing paper, fabric, and photographs is Drewniak’s attempt to capture the feeling of trying to remember something but not being able to get all of the details right. “Our memories are malleable,” she says. “They’re easily influenced by new information, and these collages are a translation of a childhood memory commingled with new details.”

Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
Kate Drewniak's, airy, 3d mixed-media works blur the lines between painting, collage and sculpture. Her process includes hand painting paper, cutting, tearing, and sewing to reassemble layered pieces into a sculptural collage. Her work has been featured Full Blede, Boston Magazine, and Gallerie Magazine.
