See you in the studio! with Karen Kitchel
Our newest series continues on
Tuesday,  October 26, 2021
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Focus on the Masters’ (FOTM) newest series, See you in the Studio! continues on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom.  This month features documented artist, Karen Kitchel. Get a tour of her studio and find out what she has done since her formal documentation. Karen’s landscapes are definitely not traditional. Of her work Karen states: “I paint them with the traditional craftsmanship of the genre’s past, and a critical eye on the geography of the present. She narrows her focus to a small patch of dried grasses or what you may always have considered just plain weeds. In isolation we see their architecture, we sense the brittleness of leaves, the wonderfully chaotic arrangement of stems and leaves. Join us as Karen shows us her wonderful studio!

These studio visits are different from FOTM’s Spotlight Series and other events you may have attended online. See you in the Studio! featured artists have all been documented by FOTM and are the inspiration for the lesson plans of FOTM’s in-school art program, Learning to See Outreach.  Says Education Director, Aimee French, “The artwork and life stories of these extraordinary artists in our community provide our youth with present day role models who have excelled in pursuit of their passions.”  

This event is FREE to all but DONATIONS gratefully accepted.
