Art Exhibit Dialogue: Essence of Place with Master Pastel Artist Kathy Beekman and moderated by gallery owner Bob Brody
Many painters paint what they see, but internationally collected artist Kathy Beekman paints memories and feelings. She is not only a master pastel artist who creates ephemeral and soulful renditions of landscapes, barnscapes and skyscapes. She is also a synesthete, and experiences a crossover between senses.
Marigold Arts gallery is delighted to offer a robust, focused dialogue with this artist on the topic of familiarity. “I lived there” or “I know where that place is” are familiar phrases when viewing Beekman’s paintings. Together, we will explore the fascinating world of synesthesia and how the artist uses it to her advantage when creating her glowingly colored yet quiet paintings. This dialogue coincides with a solo exhibit of the artist’s work at Marigold Arts gallery through July14th. Join us in celebrating the opening with this exciting dialogue starting at 2pm on July 6, 2019.
