Arcangel Gallery Exhibit
Included with Admission
Exploring Roots by artist and educator Judith Kosinski invites you on a visual journey that uncovers the roots of artistic elements and expresses the wonder of nature in a variety of media. Whether it's through the intricate veins of a leaf or vibrant brushstrokes of color, the beauty and lessons of nature are translated through the artistic eyes of Ms. Kosinski using watercolor, acrylic, oil, and mixed media. “Nature continually offers me new ways to see, and new ways to challenge my art practice,” comments Judy. “There is great joy in taking the same subject, of flowers, for example, and stretching myself artistically to represent and express what I see in as many different ways as nature presents them to me.”
