Krieger-McGhee, Lynne Bowden & Watercolor Society at Boomerang
October 7, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Boomerang—the popular downtown Vancouver coffee shop and showcase for gently used home furnishings and décor—will exhibit the works of Kara . Beginning First Friday, Oct. 7, visitors to Boomerang can see dozens of watercolor works…or purchase one, as all the paintings will be for sale. You can also meet the artists during the opening night reception on Oct. 7 from 5 to 9 p.m. with live music and light refreshments. All works will be on display through October.
Battle Ground resident Krieger-McGhee is a realist landscape painter and known for her larger-format canvases and murals. Her newest collection, “In a Different Light” is a radical departure: a series of 365 poignant, personal, postcard-sized works that illuminate the artist’s responses to and commentary on daily devotionals of 19th century writer Oswald Chambers. Additionally, Krieger-McGhee will exhibit a number of her Bird Series: Q is for Quail along with representative plein air works.
Vancouver artist Lynne Bowden will show her “Wax Infusion” mixed media encaustic paintings. Encaustic is an ancient technique of combining layers of molten beeswax, tree resin and color pigment, Bowden has developed a style all her own. She explores her fascination with other cultures by combining Old World technique—such as batik on silk, textiles or paper—and incorporating these into her wax paintings. Bowden exhibits in galleries in New York, Ohio, Florida, Philadelphia, Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest.
On the same evening, Boomerang Fine Arts will also host members of Southwest Washington Watercolor Society. Boomerang has remodeled the basement walls to accommodate the nearly 100 watercolor works of this notable group. Members will display their works along the new 150 foot-long “community arts-wall.” Formed in 1979 in Vancouver, the SWWS offers encouragement and support to artists working in watercolor and other water-media through community demonstrations, workshops and critiques.
