ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

Katherine Blakeslee is a watercolorist whose new work is a continuing exploration of nature and places real an d imaginary, familiar and strange, at home and abroad. She is fascinated by the connections between continents and peoples represented by the sea and the the sky we share.

This show's works include images from across the world where serenity
and turbulence sometimes co-exist. To Blakeslee, watercolor embodies the interplay of factors which make up our complex world. It can be both translucent and opaque, it can move slowly or quickly, and it can transcend boundaries and even the imagination of the artist. Like our world, watercolor is never within the individual artist's complete control, sometimes in wonderful co-creation.

Katherine Blakeslee has been interested in art and creative pursuits all her life. Self-taught as a watercolorist she began to explore painting in 2003, inspired, in part, by a painting she did as a child and saved by her father.
