Owls, in all their majestic, and sometimes mystical, glory are the sole subjects of the captivating exhibition Whoo?, featuring the arresting art of Karen Kent, opens at the Library's Curtis Gallery on Thursday, January 10, and runs through Sunday, March 3. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, January 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.; a Q & A with the artist will begin at 6:00 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
Owls have long been considered mythical creatures in multiple cultures. In her work, Karen Kent brings owls down from their supernatural pedestal. Using mixed media, Kent shows the viewer owls that are exuberant and approachable, sometimes even humorous. With bold, expressive brushstrokes and mixed media touches Kent’s magnificent art gives each owl a distinct personality that grabs the viewer again and again.
“I strive to make paintings that are intuitive, open to interpretation and above all, to express beauty through color, line and form,” states Kent. “While I am working, I am transported to places that combine my collective memories with imaginings of the ethereal world of ideas, structures and surrounding environments.”
