A good friend of mine, pastel artist Kathy Beekman, opens a new show “Chasing the Light” tomorrow at Gallery 821 in Denver.
Kathy is one of those artists who creates paintings that I could step right in to. For me it has to do with my fascination of “place” – Kathy’s paintings really do evoke a sense of yearning to just be there in that place and time (and her painting below is a great example!).
It promises to be a great show… and, there’s a bonus! Kathy will be demonstrating her pastel painting at Gallery 821 this Saturday, February 16, from 12pm – 3pm. Not only is she a treat to watch as she creates, but she’s a fun person to chat with a bit about her art and process. Be sure to check it out – details below!
