Contrast a man-made structure of an open doorway, framing natural leaf and garden shapes. Inspired by Kari Achatz work in the Art in Craft Media exhibition participants will use their personal inventiveness to create with new and “old” watercolor images. The motivation from Achatz' photographic work will direct watercolorist to paint sheets of watercolor paper and use existing sections of previous paintings for collage.
Jennifer Koury, a watercolorist, delights in both the natural world's play of light and color on forms, and watercolor's whimsical properties: color bleeding, reticulation and natural paint sediments. Koury has enjoyed a rewarding career as a dedicated painter and freelance illustrator. She is published in both children's and adult based books. Her work is featured at George Washington's Mount Vernon and Yuma Regional Medical Center, Arizona. After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking, Koury continued her studies to graduate from Art Center College of Design, California. A member of the BSA, NFWS and NFPAP, she resides with her family in Buffalo, and is inspired by the natural beauty of Western New York.
