This exhibit features the paintings and drawings of Kathryn Waters, artist and art professor at the University of Southern Indiana. Inspiration for these artworks is drawn from Ms. Waters' travels and residence in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Europe as well as her thirty-four years of living and working in the river city of Evansville, Indiana on the Ohio River. A sense of place has always been a major aspect of Ms. Waters' art. Some of her paintings and drawings invoke classic American scenes in a nostalgic and sometimes melancholy way. Others depict the beauty of rural England and Ireland, but vignettes of life in London, Paris and other European capitols are also represented. Waters considers her work to be narrative realism, and hopes that viewers find themselves drawn into the landscapes, city views and interior spaces presented, whether they are familiar or new. Ms. Waters feels a kinship with Mr. Downing and his love of travel and life in Europe, but is equally grounded "at home in Indiana" and in the American ethos. This exhibit illuminates both the lure of travel and the pleasure of home.

Join us for a opening reception on August 5, 2016 from 5:00-9:00 during the Bowling Green Gallery Hop.
