Karin Clarke: Paintings from Château Orquevaux
November 4 - 28, 2020
During the month of November, Karin Clarke Gallery presents an exhibit of oil paintings by the gallery’s owner, Karin Clarke. In May of 2019, Clarke attended an artist residency at Château Orquevaux in the French countryside. There she painted on location, capturing the lush green landscape and buildings of the Champagne-Ardenne region, including the Église Sainte-André and the grand Chateau, both dating to the 1700s
Since returning, she has refined these works and explored other imagery, including
self portraits and interiors, that continue the mood of the French paintings. A total of twenty-seven pieces are included in the exhibit.
Clarke says, “What I’m hoping to create in this body of work is a feeling of intimacy, romance, beauty, and solitude. I want to show something of my world and the places I cherish most. These paintings are small, and I hope they feel private and special.”
An exhibit catalog will be available for sale during the show.
No reception is planned but the gallery is open Wed-Fri 12-5:30 and Sat 10-4 as well as by appointment (in-person or virtual) to view the exhibit.
