TRANSITIONS ART SHOW: THE ART OF LIVING IN THE MOMENT AND LETTING GO November 2 - 30, 2019, Vacaville CA
Vacaville artist Karen Josephson is featured at the start of the holiday season, as the November Spotlight Artist at the Vacaville Art Gallery. Josephson’s show is called Transitions and explores the beauty of moments in time.
The show opens with a reception on Saturday November 2, 2019, from 6 to 8pm at the Vacaville Art Gallery. Meet the show’s artist, Karen Josephson, and enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres and ambient electronic music by Los Angeles musician Maxwell. All are welcome! The show remains open until November 30.
“Transitions” includes a body of over 30 oil paintings and watercolors that capture a slice of life and a moment in the passage of time. Through her paintings of abstracts, botanicals, water and shadows, Josephson highlights the fluid nature of life. Her artwork depicts transient moments of beauty and what we may see if we slow down to notice. Josephson includes a series of textural oil paintings of underwater figures in fleeting harmony with their environment. Street scenes with mysterious shadows is another oil series, with the implied narrative off frame. Rounding up the show are nine small watercolors of realistically rendered items of nature found in Solano County. This is juxtaposed by larger expressive figures in watercolor, and abstractions that are informed and inspired by underlying currents of nature’s life forces.
Karen Josephson graduated from Colorado Institute of Art, has worked as a senior designer for PBS; was an art director for an ad agency, and headed the marketing department for an international manufacturer. She left her award-winning career in the corporate world to focus her energy on her love for creating fine art. Karen takes inspiration in her work from nature and from artists who break the boundaries of convention in their artistic expression. She channels her creative impulse through her love for drawing, and painting in oils and watercolors.
A display of other gallery artists will also be on view.
