Art Exhibition in El Dorado
Asheville artist, Kathryn B. Phillips, who grew up in the Delta of Arkansas, will show her watercolor exhibit “Contraptions” in El Dorado. The exhibit will include 20 to 25 large-scale watercolor paintings of machinery parts reconfigured to create a contraption full of personality.
“I find real freedom in redesigning a perfectly fine tuned machine with specific function into an expression of humor that hopefully delights the viewer as much as it does me to create it. I choose for the most part agricultural equipment to launch my ideas, simply because that subject speaks of my home and my familiarity. My contraption series embodies this concept.”
The exhibit will be displayed at the South Arkansas Arts Center (SAAC) in El Dorado, September 3 – September 30, 2016 with a reception on September 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Visit saac-arts.com for more information; kathrynbphillips.com
