Kathleen Walsh - June Featured Artist

The Artists’ Alliance (AA) at Jarrett Thor Fine Arts is thrilled about the June show. We are featuring area painter Kathleen Walsh.  Kathleen’s show will highlight floral images, and her honed approach to using art to appreciate the world around us.


She is a master colorist, and in describing painting Cherry Blossoms stated, “Painting a branch, one becomes aware of its subtle color changes.  A branch is not brown, but blue and gray with hints of red.”  She is also a sophisticated user of negative space.  “It is the empty space which is never empty but full of delicate variations of color, tone, and texture.”  Come out and see her beautiful work.
