Rare Device is pleased to host our latest gallery show, Woodknot, featuring original wooden sculpture work by San Francisco artist Katie Gong. Gong's most recent work pushes the boundaries and characteristics of how wood is perceived. The show consists of varying sculptures shaped into playful knots and squiggles. Each sculpture speaks to calling attention to a unique material that is all around us and elevating how it is perceived.
Join Katie and the Rare Device staff on Thursday evening, September 14th at Rare Device Flagship on Divisadero from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. for the celebration. The show will be on view from Thursday, September 14th - Friday, November 6th.
About the artist:
Katie Gong, a California born sculptor, is best known for her woodwork installations. Using natural resources that are found locally she creates works of art that are simultaneously visually stunning and functionally brilliant. Her work can be seen out of her studio, Get High On Mountains, in San Francisco's Tenderloin district. Her unique pioneering of steam bending techniques allows her to challenge and develop classic woodworking practices.
