Upcoming Exhibition

This September Karin will be one of the featured artists in an exhibit in Denver titled “The Space Between” at Walker Fine Art.  

Exhibit description from the gallery:
In this exhibition, Walker Fine Art explores the physical manifestation of visual mediation. As the featured artists in The Space Between balance the negative space in their artistic compositions, a meditative practice also forms. It is within this tranquil search, the space between can reveal its harmonious power.

Karin will be traveling to Denver for the opening on September 14. The exhibit will run through November 4.

Above: Work from the “Garden Journal” Series, each 11.5 x 11.5 inches. Laser cut and etched painted Baltic birch panel.

Currently Showing

Karin has two works on display at Ligne Roset, Seattle’s premier modern furnishings gallery through August 31st. The store is located at 112 Westlake Ave. near the Seattle Center.

Karin’s art was selected by Seattle Art Museum Gallery’s director Jody Bento to be included in the Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) exhibit “Creativity Persists”. This juried member exhibition was held at CoCA’s Pioneer Square Gallery from April 26 through May 26. This was the first Seattle showing of Karin’s prints made with UV-cured inks (see story below).

 Printing with UV-cured Inks

Karin was invited to Irvine, California in order to explore state of the art printers at Roland DGA. In this workshop with several other artists, she was able to explore printing with white ink and varnish using the Roland FEF-300 printer. These experiments led to the creation of of a series of work called Inflorescence.Images left to right:
