MAKE.SHIFT JULY ART WALK:
WORKS BY FRANCIA OROZCO, KAREN HANRAHAN,
KATIE HOWARD, & CYDNI CARTER
For the month of July, Make.Shift Gallery has invited four unique local artists for an exhibition titled,
“Prospective Parts.” Through a variety of mediums, each artist’s practice focuses on complex representations of
the human body. In different ways, each artist’s work raises interesting questions about the body’s role as a
political landscape, a spiritual vehicle, and a visual subject.
Francia Orozco’s bright and bold paintings are heavily influenced by her Mexican culture and her
experience as an immigrant, minority, and woman in this country. Karen Hanrahan’s up-close black and white

paintings depict scenes of craving and hunger. Through mixed media pieces that combine black and white
photography, collage, and embroidery, Cydni Carter creates complex and layered maps of that which we call
We hope to see you at the opening of “Prospective Parts” on Friday July 6th, from 6-10pm. The show
will be on display through the month of July.
