A Sense of Place – Views of Kingston by the Artists of OKWA
April 1, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - April 23, 2016 @ 4:00 pm
The artists of the Organization of Kingston Women Artists present a visual exploration of Kingston, a personal, social, historical and emotional look at Kingston through the eyes of painters, sculptors, potters, and photographers.
The Organization of Kingston Women Artists (OKWA) is a non-profit independent association formed in 1989, with a current membership of approximately 55 artists. Membership is by juried application only. The organization provides a forum for mutual support and exchange of information and ideas among local professional women artists. An annual exhibition serves to increase public awareness and appreciation of contemporary women’s art.
In addition to exhibition opportunities, OKWA offers workshops and Artists Talks to members and the public. For several years the group has provided scholarship funds for a graduating high school student intending to pursue an art education.
OKWA artists are individually active in teaching, lecturing and exhibiting their work locally, nationally, and internationally.
As part of the OKWA show A Sense of Place, two of the artists whose work is featured in the exhibition will be giving artist talks at the Pump House Steam Museum on April 14, from 6:45 to 9 p.m.. Maureen Sheridan and Caroline Marshall will be giving illustrated lectures about the processes and ideas behind their paintings. Audience Questions and discussion will follow.
