"INTO THE GARDEN": PAINTINGS BY KATE KNAPP
JANUARY 5 - JANUARY 28, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 3 - 6 pm
Kate Knapp loves her gardens and these paintings are filled with that love in the form of brilliant colors and complex designs. We are led down the stone walkways into the flower beds and vegetable gardens she has planted and cared for over many years as well as the gardens planted by her friends. One can feel the ripeness in the intricate blossoms that abound. Looking through the arched arbors and wrought iron gates we see old houses, barns and light-filled yards that create backdrops for these lovely plantings. Often an outdoor chair, watering can or sundial will hold our attention and lead us deeper into the landscape. Generous paint and brushwork that visibly moves around the canvas describe the four seasons; scenes that make these paintings exciting and compelling.
