Two sisters exhibit at the Rappahannock Art League
Sisters Bonnie and Kathryn Murray will team up to fill the exhibit room at the Rappahannock Art League (RAL) gallery for the month of August. With the vast majority of subject matter being from the Northern Neck, the work often has a familiar, though expressive feel.
Kathryn’s photos are almost exclusively of local landscapes and seascapes—photos that are infused in aluminum, a process that provides a crisp, contemporary feel to the work.
Many of Bonnie’s works are derived from photos of the area and show a different take on our rural scenes, with a wide range of expression shown in her oil paintings, monotypes and collagraphs.
Along with the local subject matter, Bonnie will exhibit numerous large bird prints that are collagraphs. This print-making process is highly complex and, because of her expertise, the results look simple, which is not an easy task.
Kathryn is newer at exhibiting her artwork but finds that years working with creative people and in artistic environments has culminated in a special way of seeing the Northern Neck.
The RAL invites the public to its opening reception on Friday, August 2, from 5-7 p.m. The show continues through August 31 at the RAL Studio Gallery, 19 North Main Street, Kilmarnock.
