Karen Bowden’s Exhibit at The Up Front Gallery

Posted in Photography on November 29th, 2012 by Mo

A good friend exhibited some of her watercolor and mixed media works at Lynchburg’s Academy of Fine Arts‘ “Up Front Gallery” the month of November.

Karen took time to arrange for me to shoot her exhibit this week and while there introduced me to Ted Batt, the Exhibition Curator of the Academy of Fine Arts (“AFA”). Ted and Karen led me on a tour of the AFA, pointing out the details of it’s ongoing resurrection and restoration. Their website has links to the process, showing the future of the theater and is well worth a look. It’s amazing to see the “internals” of this very historic site.

Karen is an educated and very accomplished artist with an abundance of talent, which I am very jealous of. I’m trying to coax her into getting back into teaching, by teaching me(!) the basics of producing the various medias she is fluent in. I envy those possessing artistic talents, it must be very satisfying to produce the works of art they do.  For more of Karen’s great work, please visit her website.

Enjoy.
