3 Solo Shows
This spring, the Regional Art Galleries of the Arkell Museum and Canajoharie Library will exhibit the work of three women with long careers in the visual arts working in oils, watercolor, pastel, and pen and ink. Susan A. Coon uses a representational style to “create a sense of rhythm and beauty” in oil. Susan Ann Lunow employs watercolor and pen and ink with an eye to convey the “freshness, energy, iridescence and spontaneity in nature”. Both artists have exhibited widely in the region and won awards. Kristin A. Woodward is a Signature Member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society and the Central New York Watercolor Society, among other groups. She was appointed by the Governor of NY to the Empire State Plaza Art Commission, has exhibited nationally and participated in 23 one-woman and 15 two-person exhibitions. Working in pastel, oil, and watercolor to convey emotion, she writes: “...in landscapes, seascapes, still life, animal portraits...It’s all about the color!”
Woodward and Coon’s work will be on view April 7th through June 7th, Lunow's work was on exhibit April 7th through May 12th.
