April and May First Friday: Hattie Odell


M-AAA Presents the Premiere of Self by Artist Hattie Odell

M-AAA is pleased to present the exhibition Self, new work from artist Hattie Odell, for First Friday April 6 and May 4 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. at 2018 Baltimore in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District.

In navigating through an inherently subjective world, Self searches for a way to implement objectivity and remove intuitive expressionism when approaching portraiture. Devoid of color, excessive decoration, or irrational decisions, this series elevates the language of numbers as an ideal representative tool.

Odell studies sculpture at the Kansas City Art Institute. Self will be on view for First Friday on April 6 and May 4 from 6:00–8:00 p.m., with other hours by appointment. It closes May 4.
