OWL Art Gallery- Pathways: Exploring White's Woods- Oil Paintings by Kerwin Kipp Mayers

From April 29 - June 28, 2014, the Oliver Wolcott Library will exhibit oil paintings by Kerwin Kipp Mayers in the art gallery. The opening reception is on Thursday, May 1, 2014 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

LITCHFIELD, Conn. - April 8, 2014 - PRLog -- From the first day Kerwin Mayers stepped onto the boardwalk at White’s Woods, she knew this special area would beckon her again and again. Before moving to Litchfield County in 2007, she had not been a landscape painter, but the beauty of the region became a beacon that directed her work down this path. Two years ago, she thought she would try a series of twelve paintings representing each month. Quickly the project expanded to more than thirty paintings taken from many spots in White’s Woods at all times of the year and all times of the day.  She is indebted to the Alaine White family for providing this amazing preservation for all to enjoy and for her, a blank canvas to fill.

Kerwin started painting in oil at Sarah Lawrence College and has since studied for many years with Pamela duLong Williams. Her art education has been broadened through workshops with Wolf Kahn, Charles Sovek and Robert Burridge. In recent years her paintings have been in juried shows at the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Rowayton Arts Center and Kent Art Association.

A portion of all art sales benefit the Oliver Wolcott Library.  In addition, the artist will be giving an additional portion to the White Memorial Foundation for their boardwalk. In the gallery: April 29- June 28. Reception- Thursday, May 1, from 5:00- 7:00 p.m. at the Oliver Wolcott Library, 160 South Street, Litchfield, CT. 06759. 860-567-8030. www.owlibrary.org
