‘Reconfiguration: Works By Bette Levy And Kathleen Loomis’

For once in a lifetime (we hope), everyone has had to change due to the pandemic. Or, to use the word preferred by artists Bette Levy and Kathleen Loomis, reconfigure. For Levy, reconfiguring is an active process of altering earlier art. “It is exciting to examine past work and to see it in a different way,” she said. “Some of [the work] is new, but it too has the possibility of being reconfigured at a later date.” Loomis’ idea of change is to make old, discarded items new again, by way of art. As a confessed pack rat, she “likes to reassemble these disparate things and see what happens when they get into small groups and start to talk to one another.”
