The Jung Center presents "Sharon Kopriva" gallery reception
A luminary of the Houston art scene, Sharon Kopriva will present a collection of rarely and never-before-seen early works. This exhibition, curated by Pete Gershon, will feature paintings, sculptures, and archival materials, all inspired by the artist’s life-changing visit to the Nazca Desert in southern Peru in 1982.
Kopriva is internationally known for her spiritual and darkly mysterious sculptural work - mummy-like figures which deliver a biting and frequently macabre critique of Catholic righteousness. Images inspired by the natural landscapes of Peru, Australia, and Hope, Idaho have also been central to her practice.
The exhibit will be on display October 2-30.
