Katherine Bernhardt’s ‘GOLD’ Exhibition Opening at Art Omi

Art Omi’s latest exhibit, Katherine Bernhardt’s ‘GOLD’, is a collection of seven large paintings of the enigmatic yet illustrious Pink Panther. The paintings are not dissimilar to Bernhardt’s early work, which focused on supermodels such as Gisele Bündchen and Kate Moss. Over the past decade, Katherine Bernhardt’s subjects have expanded to include pop cultural icons (e.g. Darth Vader, Garfield, E.T., the Pink Panther, etc.), as well as more quotidian objects (cigarettes, toilet paper, MTA MetroCards, sharks, watermelons, Scotch Tape, ice cream, pizza, etc.).

Opening Reception – Saturday, April 6, 2019: 2 – 4pm
