Mixed media artist Kathy Constantine is featured in July at the Burien Arts Gallery.
Meet Kathy at the opening reception on Friday, July 8, from 5-8 PM at the Gallery, 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien.
The exhibit runs June 29-July 30.
“My mixed-media pieces flow directly from my vivid and colorful imagination and seldom use any reference material. I often add a bit of whimsy to my pieces.” Kathy explains.
“I incorporate hand-painted and hand-formed papers; metal leaf; images that are drawn or painted on the computer; photography; mono-printing; painting; sketching; and more as I create a piece. I build up layers as I go, adding mystery and depth to the pieces. I love the array of acrylic media available to create texture and other effects. “
Kathy’s work has been shown extensively in Port Townsend and Port Ludlow. She received a Merit award at the Northwind Arts Center Collage Show. AAUW selected two of her mixed media pieces for a national art competition.
Nancy Bogni and Nancy Fulton will be showing in the Artists United room at the Gallery in July. They are members of Washington Women Painters and signature members of Northwest Watercolor Association. These two artists paint in oil, watercolor and acrylic.
