I was scheduled to show a collection of my landscape paintings during the month of June 2020 at the Mount Utsayantha Regional Arts League’s lovely little gallery on Main Street in Hobart, New York. The world had other plans!
As a result of the pandemic, we’ve pivoted to a Virtual Art Show, which I will host on Facebook Live at 5 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday, May 30. We’ll be webcasting the show on MURAL’s Facebook page (see the link below). I will post the link on my Facebook pages as the date approaches.
I’ll be showing and talking about my watercolors, including some of my old favorites and a collection of new paintings inspired by winter trips to the Gulf Coast that I’ve enjoyed the past few years.
And there’s more!
We’re going to have some family fun with this unusual show. For years, I’ve been thinking about doing a joint show to include my paintings with the artwork of my late mother and creative inspiration, Mabel Worden Gutliph, who was a talented painter and sculptor (in addition to mothering six children); my twin brother, Kevin Gutliph, who creates wonderfully whimsical sculptures out of scrap metal; and my sister, Dr. Joanne Gutliph, who might have been destined for a career in art had she not been drawn to the field of medicine.
So I’ll be gathering up pieces from each of them for the MURAL show and will share a bit of my mother’s and siblings’ art and their stories with all of you who are able to join us on Facebook Live on May 30. Here’s the link to the MURAL Facebook page, where you’ll be able to join me.
After the live event, we’ll post a recording in several places: here on my website, on my YouTube channel, and on my Facebook pages, including this one: https://www.facebook.com/karen.gutliphgraves
I’m very excited. Hope to see you!
