Showcase Artist of the Month at the Northwind Arts Center, 701 Water Street, Port Townsend, WA features Northwest artist Katherine Loveland.
Katherine Loveland grew up in Seattle, and earned a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Rutgers University. In her practice she used postcard reproductions of museum art to elicit emotional reactions in patients. Katherine has pursued photography now that she is retired.
Fascinated by the Abstract in Nature, Katherine says, "When released from the distracting familiar, my awareness is free to respond at a deeper emotional and philosophic level. I can be a child experiencing an image without visual constraints."
Katherine uses repetitions and variations of shapes, textures and colors to produce tactile sculptural images. She feels that the triptych format provides a more complex visual experience.
The show runs from November 2nd through November 26th.
Opening Reception and Art Walk Saturday, November 4th, from 5:30-8 p.m.
Exhibit hours are Wednesday through Monday, 11:30 – 5 p.m. Closed Tuesdays.
