Stop by Woodruff’s Art Center this Sunday, April 27th, 5-7pm, for the opening reception of their latest show “In The Moment”. The show features new and recent watercolors by award winning artist and teacher Kate Aubrey.
Aubrey’s playful use of color and bold execution of light invite the viewer to truly experience “the moment” in this solo exhibition of her watercolor paintings. Her works include genres from landscape to figure. She is fascinated by light and color, value and emotion; this fascination shines through in this exhibit.
A devoted watercolorist for over 35 years, Kate relocated to Cape Cod from Reno, NV. New England has become one of her favorite places to paint and she has quickly become a popular instructor at the Falmouth Artists Guild.
The show will be on view through Sunday, June 8th. Woodruff’s Art Center hours are Monday through Saturday, 10am-6pm and Sunday 11am-5pm. For directions and more information about Woodruff’s please visit www.WoodruffsArtCenter.com.
