Women on Paper: 30th Anniversary Artist Reception
Friday, September 8, 2017
Women on Paper for 30 years
This reception is a celebration of the “individual creative spirit, encouraged by group support”. Women on Paper is a group of professional women artists who nurture the creative urge in ourselves and each other. The group features paintings of people and places, of gardens and interiors, of landscapes and flowers, still lifes and imaginings, lights and shadow. 
All  of the group members work with watercolor, gouache, pastel, collage or mixed media. “Our work weaves solitary studio work with paintings resulting from group painting sessions.”
Each artist has her own vision and dreams, her own rhythm, her own song. Each contributes her own unique way of looking at the world and the support of the group encourages this special voice. We are together as a group in purpose, but individual Women on Paper. Featuring the art of Karen Banker, Carolyn Bohn, Lauren Kerbelis, Nancy Schulz, Gail Smith, and Caroline Swanson.
