Kauffman, Maney and Klick featured at the River Gallery
Visions of nature can be calm and soothing. Photographs and paintings of flowers and trees evoke a sense of calm in the chaotic daily grind. At least, that is the theme of the latest exhibit to grace the River Gallery.
Judy Klick has always been fascinated by “calm versus chaos,” and the concept features prominently in her work. She uses an ancient technique called encaustic painting, in which a blend of beeswax and resin is used to set the paint, making for an organic painting that is pleasant for both gallery viewers and the environment.
Kim Kauffman has a passion for her camera and a passion for gardening. The passions combine in “Florilegium”, her latest contribution of work to the River Gallery. It is a visual expression of the dialog between humans and plants, a culmination of more than 16 years of discovery behind the lens.
Edie Maney’s work focuses on color. Using many different painting mediums, she splashes and scrapes color onto the canvas to create bold expressions of the nature around her. Together, the works of all three artists combine to make a bold, colorful and aesthetically pleasing interpretation of the calm of nature in the chaos of life.
