<p><span><span class="fsl">San Antonio based artist Katie Pell creates a large sculptural charm bracelet out of reclaimed wood, filling the gallery, while being shadowed by corresponding charcoal drawings.<br /> <br /> Citing both traditional bracelets and cargo cults as inspiration, Katie&rsquo;s piece is an extension of her ongoing interest is self-creation, the prison created by self-description, and m<span class="text_exposed_show">aking really great objects she wants to look at for a while. Her multimedia and hands on approach to her work alternates between facile and awkward, with occasionally jarring, and sometimes beautiful results.<br /> <br /> The second room contains a large collection of her ongoing- comparison collages; two images, presented with handwritten text. Selected from her collection are pieces that address the unformed wishes that trail her everywhere.</span></span></span></p>
