The South Pasadena Arts Council (SPARC) presents artist Kait Walsh in her debut solo exhibition, They Call Her, opening Saturday, March 7, with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m., and running through April 15 at the SPARC Chamber Gallery in South Pasadena.

For nearly a decade, Kait Walsh taught five- and six-year-olds. Now she spends her days creating art and stories for the kid in all of us.

In the last year, she has written, illustrated and self-published two children’s books centered on community and our emotions.

You can watch her on the YouTube series, Creative Lite, listen to her on the podcast, In Which I Talk To Artists; and hang with her at her monthly sketchbook class in Silver Lake.

Kait’s debut show, They Call Her, curated by Richard Blue Trimarchi of Art Works Fine Art Publishing, is part picture book—with original images made using her favorite mediums of painting, collage and embroidery—and part community art project, “because,” like all her work, Walsh says, “the real magic happens in the spaces where it interacts with you.”

They Call Her,” SPARC Chamber Gallery, March 7-April 15; opening reception, Saturday, March 7, 5-8 p.m.

The SPARC Chamber Gallery is located inside the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce at 1121 Mission Street. (Gallery hours vary; after the opening reception, it is suggested that you call the Chamber at (626) 441 2339 to confirm your visit.)

Admission is free. Information about SPARC, a non-profit organization: sopasartscouncil.org
