Kate Van Der Riet Solo Exhibition 

When: Oct. 1-26 2007

Roughly eighty percent of Kate Van DerRiet's new solo exhibition - 25 intaglio copperplate etchings and screen-prints on display through Friday at Oakland's Diving Swallow Custom Tattoo parlor - focuses on botanical themes. The artist, who says she's preoccupied with "finding small unnoticed beauties," occasionally casts her eye on household accoutrements - she recently developed a series of etchings based on kitchen spices. Still, orchids remain Van DerRiet's primary muse. In much of her work, Van DerRiet meticulously reproduces the flower's waxen leaves and mottled, bell-shaped petals, rendering a fleeting form into something permanent. Fittingly, she and Diving Swallow owner Marie Wadman spent the last nine months designing a 3 ft. Sharry Baby orchid tattoo to creep up Van DerRiet's side. Closing reception Friday, October 26, 6-8 p.m.
