Artist Market Demo on YES Canvas by Kathy Braud

May 23rd, 2017

Artist Market Demo on YES Canvas by Kathy Braud

5/19/2017 I am Kathy Braud RRWS, a Central Minnesota watercolor artist. I have enjoyed my journey of creating art, exhibitions, juried art shows, art fairs, sales and do have a worldwide presence on the web with Fine Arts America. Many workshops has yielded me instruction to understand how to make a better painting, paying attention to important details of line, color, shape and the principles of design. I choose to make value studies, focus on light, middle and dark values and interlocking shapes. The sharp contrast of dark values against the path of light do make my paintings very bold and dramatic. Even arranging different colors together can produce exciting mood changes. I feel my function as a painter goes beyond recording an event with the accuracy of a camera, but instead, feel I am capturing a mood, memory, or am describing a pleasure which enriches my spirit. One of my goals in my paintings is to have fun, be enthusiastic and share this impression with you. www.kathy-braud.artistwebsites.com

A photo of me, see attached - standing near my art display in the Fine Art Building, MN State Fairgrounds!
How did I started?

I have always enjoyed art, even as I went about becoming a nurse. When my oldest child left the nest, I filled the hole, took a long workshop and fell in love with watercolor. Since then I try to take at least one workshop per year and enjoy attending the NSWS demo’s available to us.

A description plan of my demo -
I plan to use the new YES canvas, with a surface like hot press paper to paint on. I will use watercolor media to paint a colorful floral painting and explore and manipulate this new surface. I had a Showy Lady Slipper to show visitors.
After the demo is at home, coats of acrylic clear coat will be added to protect the canvas after the painting is finished. The art painted on the YES canvas can be hung with a wire without additional framing. I am eagerly awaiting painting on the canvases so I can have playtime!

Kathy Braud Accepted into the Essential Art Exhibition 2017

Congratulations to the 40 participants being featured from across the state of Minnesota,who were accepted into this year's 17th Annual Essential Arts Exhibition & Celebration.
Sponsored by Visual Arts Minnesota, St. Cloud, MN this display is on display at the Paramount Center for the Arts, St Cloud, MN. January 19 - March 5, 2017. Six artists working in 2D and 3D, will have their works be recognized for awards
.
Essential Art is a showcase of mature artwork selected by curator Tricia Heuring. The exhibit is a theme-less exhibit that explores the dedicated practice of our community’s creative producers. “Being the sum of a hybrid identity, Tricia Heuring is drawn to relate to diverse peoples and situations and a belief that by accepting our own complexity, we find depth and common ground with others.” In difference, the Essential Art exhibition discovers cohesive forces in the space between varied artworks.

The Reception and Recognition Ceremony for Essential Arts will be held Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 8;00 pm., 913 W. St. Germain St., St. Cloud, MN 56301
