ODE TO BEES
Now through JULY 30, 2017
Woodstock Art Exchange announces a new exhibition by acclaimed artist Lucinda Knaus. Titled Ode to Bees, the collection, on display through July 2017, features mixed media, brilliant paintings inspired by the artist’s travel and love of nature. “Bees are utterly essential to our natural world,” says Lucinda. “Pollination equals survival, and the perpetuation color, beauty and diversity. I’ve incorporated them into many of my new paintings.”
The works pulsate with saturated colors, textures and design motifs reflecting time spent in India, Europe and Latin America, as well as the lush mountains and rivers of the Hudson Valley where she makes her home.
The exhibit was curated to complement Woodstock Art Exchange’s fine collection of handblown glass and sculpture.
I enjoy working in watercolor, drawing, and collage. I love to overlay images and combine media to express the many layers of my experience.
Lucinda Knaus grew up in Connecticut and Massachusetts, but spent several years during her childhood in India – a country to which she continues to return for artistic and cultural inspiration. She received her BFA degree in painting from the University of Connecticut. In 1983, she moved from New York City to the Hudson Valley, where she painted, performed in a puppet troupe, gardened, and taught art, while raising her family. Since 1991, she has worked out of her studio in Shady, New York.
Her work has been exhibited in many galleries throughout the Northeast, and can be found in private collections from Maine to Florida. www.lucindaknaus.com
