In conjunction with the The Hillwood Estate Museum & Gardens exhibition “Rich Soil,” on display June 26, 2021 – January 9, 2022, Zenith Gallery will be exhibiting some of Kristine May’s extraordinary new works.

Working with hard rigid wire, Mays has captured humanity — revealing strength, perseverance and resilience. This exhibition carries themes of multiple identities, love, community, survival, life and pain. This exhibition explores the reality of how we see ourselves and others.

May’s is an American artist currently living and working in San Francisco, California. Independently trained, and a self-described maker for her entire life, she began crafting with wire in 1993, after years of drawing, sketching, sewing, and bead work. Of her current work, Mays says, “I am honored and humbled that I can spend my life creating artwork.”   read more
