In the Garden, 2.  64 x 48 by Katherine Kurtz
exhibition
September 2 September 27, 2015

This show comes from Katherine's love of painting the figure freely. The old Shaker song Simple Gifts says it best: "and when we are found in the place that is right/We will be in the garden of love and delight."

In this show, Katherine Kurtz returns to painting the figure, larger and more loosely than ever.  Often monumental in size, the paintings nevertheless convey an intimacy and a tenderness.
