Meg Kaczyk, paintings and Michael Kenney, jewelry are both showing new art during the month of August that represents geography, beauty and time through a sense of place.
For years, Meg Kaczyk has headed out to sketch the water, the boats, the mountains and the sky as vivid snapshots of timeless place. From these volumes of loose watercolor sketches, Meg paints expressionist renditions in liquid acrylic on panels. The swirls and drips are exclamations to the color and form. Meg explains, “I like to take the initial sketch beyond the realm of realism, to capture the feeling, the motion and the heart of a scene.” New work being shown this month includes large pieces inspired by scenes on the Olympic Peninsula, as well as images sketched during travels back east.
Meg was trained at Kendall School of Art, and also works in oils, cut paper, monoprints and watercolor. Meg has exhibited her work for over 30 years, locally and in collections across the US and beyond.
Join Meg Kaczyk and Michael Kenney in discussing their art during Gallery Walk, Saturday, August 5, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at Gallery 9, 1012 Water Street, in Port Townsend. See gallery-9.com or call 379-8881 for more information.
