We are featuring Kathy Boland as our December ArtWalk artist with a called “Forever Dorothy. Her show opens December 17, 2018 and runs through January 31, 2019.
Artist reception will take place during ArtWalk December 20th, 2018, 5:00 pm - 8:00pm.
Kathy works mainly in acrylics due to the natural feeling and more of a connection to the paint itself. She also works in pastels for their purity of color, and oils for their richness and texture.
Kathy started her focus on art in college and has studied abroad in England at Kingston on Thames Art School- which led to her gaining a new perspective due to the broad variety of art forms she was exposed to during that time.
Dorothy Draper was a remarkable woman, and she left an amazing heritage through her impact on the Greenbrier resort of West Virginia. Having enjoyed the Greenbrier’s decor for the strong elements of Dorothy Draper‘s flair for design, Kathy wanted to record the richness and boldness of her designs in her artwork.
Kathy’s “Forever Dorothy” is the culmination of her work featuring the Greenbrier Resort. #MeetMeDowntown
