River Tapestries

October 3-31, 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 3, 4-7 PM
Artist Talk: Friday, October 23, 11 AM

River Tapestries is Karlene McConnell’s second solo exhibition at Arts on Douglas. For this display of new work, she explores her memories and perceptions of the natural world through a collection of colorful, gestural paintings. McConnell spent a lot of time in nature as a child, explaining, “I was raised in the South and remember experiencing the warm, red clay of the Alabama riverbeds and the expansive green marshes of Florida. When I was a young girl, my family vacationed in New England, where I also enjoyed the refreshing breezes along Maine’s coast and the brisk cool blues and grays of the Berkshire Hills. I eventually found my home along the Tomoka River in Florida. While working on this exhibition, all of these organic experiences manifested in my art.”   READ MORE>>>
