"Through The Window" New Paintings by Liz Kauffman

Winding Brook Bistro 933 Rte. 100C, Johnson, VT info: 802-635-9950 Show Dates March 10 – April 30, 2010

Local Johnson Artist, Liz Kauffman, is the featured artist at the Winding Brook Bistro from March 10- April 30.

The opening reception is on Wednesday, March 10 from 4-6pm. Hors-d’ouvres served and cash bar provided.

Liz uses the combination of color, texture and line to create her abstracted landscapes. Liz’s imagery is taken, in part, from her most immediate environment, the Vermont landscape. From the ever- changing beauty she pulls fragments of the color, horizon and geographical masses to create her own landscapes... “the sensual, fragile figures are the foundation throughout my drawings and paintings”. This vocabulary remains the source of her energy to create vibrant, moving paintings.

Over the past four years Liz has worked as a resident staff artist at the Vermont Studio Center. In addition to working at the Studio Center, Liz has been teaching local children’s art classes as well as teaching classes at the Helen Day Art Center. She was born in Allentown PA, lived her childhood in Northeastern Ohio and received a B.A. in Fine arts from the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio.
