Pat Mark,”Botanicals in Perspective”
“Seek first to understand and then to be understood,” -M. Ghandi
“As a botanical artist, I must first understand in detail the botanical I am portraying. As a person I have arms, ribs, legs, and organs, I am a living breathing individual. All plants have counterparts to those; they have a vascular system, leaves, stems, and often flowers. Each of those parts have subparts. So first I strive to understand the plant, not just its beauty, but how it functions and thrives. Only then do I draw and paint that plant in a composition that not only explains the plant to the viewer but also draws the viewer into its beauty.”
260 W. Bonita Ave., 6-9 p.m.
“Wax on – Wax off”
“We will be showing the work of women who have been showing together for years. Most of the work is done with encaustic which lends itself to the very organic theme of the show. Caryl St. Ama has a long career in arts education. She earned her MFA from CGU and was awarded a teaching associateship with Roland Reiss. Karen Karlsson is working with geometric abstractions rendered in layers of wax, resin and pigment. Sue Connor grew up with an artist mother who was a constant source of inspiration. Sue works in many layers of wax and found objects. Denise Kraemer is a skilled printmaker who delights us with her whimsical work.”
