Kyle Buckland and Karla Mann
A Duo Exhibition: Contrasting Styles
Join us JUNE 11-19 for our first art show of the summer, featuring artists Kyle Buckland and Karla Mann. The show, titled "A Duo Exhibition: Contrasting Styles", will highlight the varying styles between the two artists.
Kyle Buckland is a plein air impressionist painter. His style focuses on using bold brushstroke and vivid color to capture a moment in time. As a plein air painter, Buckland ventures out into the world with his paints, where he is subject to weather conditions and varying light which he manages to capture beautifully in his landscapes. Buckland aims to capture the feeling of a fleeting moment in nature by using heavy paint application to create more than what meets the eye.
Karla Mann is an internationally recognized wildlife painter. In contrast to Buckland's style, Mann is a hyper-realistic painter. Her process is quite involved; first, she sets out on adventures with her camera, and captures thousands of images of wildlife all over the country (and the world!) Some of the wildlife can be routinely seen, like squirrels, bird, etc. Some of the wildlife she captures are rarely seen by humans, like bears, stags, and otters. Mann is determined to paint detail for detail what she sees in the photographs she takes. She aims to lend insight into the lives of these creatures in their natural habitats.
