She has studied pastels with many nationally known artists including Albert Handell, Ann Templeton, Liz Haywood-Sullivan, Robert Carsten, Aline Ordman, and Barbara Jaenicke.
One of the works she dropped off was "Cottage at the Point", one of her many paintings that create a sense of peace.
Another was "Misty Islands", Gwen does a very good job at depicting reflections along water!
To get ready for the incoming fall season, Gwen brought in "October Shadows" as well, the orange and yellow leaves make a very good contrast with the white house, and the shadows, again, create a nice sense of peace.
To see more of her new works, come stop by the gallery!
One of Harvest Gold's prized artists is Kathy Angel Lee, a passionate quilter who's beautiful pieces are perfect for autumn.
Kathy’s passion and avocation has been sewing since she was twelve years old. In the late 1980s, Kathy was introduced to quilting through an appliqué class. From that simple beginning, her work has evolved from a traditional form to a more artistic format. She is primarily self-taught, but has taken classes from many internationally known textile artists. In addition, she takes painting and drawing classes with local artists.
Since her redirection (or retirement) from education in 2002, Kathy enjoys experimenting with a wide range of fabrics and techniques in both traditional and non-traditional ways. Currently, her interests are landscapes, flowers, wearable art, fabric manipulation, creating her own painted and dyed fabric and working in mixed media with textiles, threads, paints and embellishments. She looks to nature for her inspiration, photographing the flowers in her garden or beautiful landscapes around her home or in her travels. Her work is more representational than abstract, although she is beginning to experiment with some abstract expression. Come see more of her work at Harvest Gold!
With the end of summer coming to end, we at Harvest Gold wanted to thank everyone who came in over the past few months, specifically the artists who came to paint plein air! Some wonderful art works were produced by his summers plein air paint-outs as well as great time shared together. Kristen Dill was our last featured artist of the season, and painted a gorgeous nature-inspired still life painting inspired by summer flowers and fruits, and the glorious views from the gallery.
We also are very thankful for our loyal customers, who return every summer to stop in and say hi! Thank you everyone for your continuous support of the gallery. Goodbye summer and welcome fall!
