PRESS RELEASE: Karen Day-Vath at Collins Perley, St. Albans

St. Albans artist Karen Day-Vath will be exhibiting her work this weekend at the Craft Show at Collins Perley. Karen is a self taught artist working in oil and acrylic and has lived in St. Albans, for 15 years.

Her work is more expressionism than anything else. For her there is no set style, her work is varied, and goes from abstract to traditional depending on the mood that strikes her when she begins to paint. In December of 2010 while exhibiting her work at Cosmic Bakery & CafĂ© in St. Albans her work was seen by an associate of Vermont Public Radio. Her paintings “All That Jazz” and “Let’s Jam” were selected for the “Artist Mug” for Vermont Public Radio’s online membership drive for February 2011.

This year she won second place in mixed media at the Champlain Valley Fair Art Show at the Blue Ribbon Pavilion for her painting Liquid Gold. Karen is an active member of the community and an advocate for the arts. She is a member of the NVAA, Worldwide Women Artists, Studio Place Arts in Barre, and she is on the executive committee of the Saint Albans Artists’ Guild.

She just recently was on the committee for the 5th Annual Taylor Park Fine Wine, Beer, and Food Festival, and was also in charge of supplying local artwork for the art tent. She is currently “On the Walls” at Chow! Bella Restaurant in St. Albans, and along with exhibiting at the Collins Perley Craft Show this week-end, she will also be exhibiting her work at the upcoming 20thAnnual Williston FAP Holiday Craft Show on November 5, and at the 35th Annual Pre Christmas Craft Show at Milton High School on November 12, 2011.
