Katy Richards shines at DAM scholarship show

How do you like them pomegranates? Very much, it turns out, for the ones in the painting by Katy Richards in the Detroit Artists Market annual scholarship show, which were very well liked by everyone who came to the opening reception last night. "They're paint-oriented, that makes me happy," said Clara DeGalan, a painter who was selected for last year's scholarship show. DeGalan singled out the painting by Richards with the women and the pomegranates as her favorite in this year's show.

For this year's installment, John Korachis selected art students from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. (Last year was Wayne State University). "I envision how the pieces will fit together in the show," Korachis explained. "In January we had studio visits," Richards recalled. After visiting the studios of the finalists, Korachis and Peter Gahan selected the winners, awarding Richards first place.

The show also includes the art of Simone Schiffmacher with a take on corporate logos that recalls the work of Dan Armand at the Red Bull House of Art. One thing hardly anyone liked at the opening reception was the ambient stylings of Joel Peterson and David Shettler on Roland and Korg keyboards. As the gallery got more and more packed with people, Peterson and Shettler raised the volume on their instruments to obnoxious levels.

The show will be up until April 5. A gallery talk is scheduled for March 22 at 12:00 p.m., according to the gallery's website.
