Exhibition in 2018

This fall Karin was 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.

The exhibit ran September 14 through November 4. Photos of the exhibit courtesy of Walker Fine Art can be viewed here.

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

Residential Installation
