Fort Gallery explores love and grief

Contemporary Artist Kristin Krimmel has created a 13 panel suite of text-based images to express her passage through love and grief

In coming to terms with a deep period of grief, contemporary Artist Kristin Krimmel has created a 13 panel suite of text-based images to express her passage through love and grief. This latest exhibition, Love and Grief, begins today and is on until Feb. 21 at the Fort Gallery.

Krimmel chose to create this suite as an expression of feelings, thoughts and experiences which could not be put into words of prose.

In November 2015, her companion of 38 years suddenly passed away. Although the panel series was born from different circumstances, this event is pertinent in times of grief and love.

“Through these images, I want the viewer to explore her or his own cycles of love and grief — both the glory and the anguish,” Krimmel said.

“I want the viewer to remember the raw feelings that come with it which can be transformed with time into positive personal growth, culminating in forgiveness, understanding and healing.”

Join Krimmel at the opening reception on Sunday, Feb. 7 from 1-4 p.m.

The Fort Gallery is located at 9048 Glover Rd. Regular gallery hours are noon to five p.m., Wednesday to Sunday.
