Mother and Son: It's in the Genes Exhibition
Clarice Kumblien, watercolorist, and Eric Kumblien, printmaker and potter, are a mother and son team coming together for a great exhibition at the Renaissance Art Gallery. These Tri-State artists opening reception was held March 9 from 2pm to 4 pm. Both artists had multiple sales.
Clarice exhibited a great sampling (pictured below) of portraits, landscape, and still life works. Her watercolors are meticulously developed and beautifully rich in color.
Eric's printmaking and ceramics skills rounded out their show with something for everyone. Eric's expertise both in ceramic and printmaking speaks well for his technical experience. The exhibition closes April 20th.
Fern Christian, Susan Tshantz, Janet Lester, Linda Helgason, Laura Moul, Pati Payne, Gary Lapelle, Ron Haeberle, and Leona Mackey are featured artists from the Renaissance Art Gallery.
These artists brought a well balanced range of media to the show: encaustic, watercolor, colored pencil, glass, watercolor, photography, oil, and mixed media. The quality of the work is excellent, and the variety of the styles makes the show worth seeing for everyone. Ohio University Proctorville Center students will benefit from having this show just outside of their art rooms.
Ohio University Proctorville Center is just minutes from downtown Huntington... there's something for everyone - don't miss it!
Dates: March 18th - April 29th, 2014
