The Shenandoah Valley Art Center, during the month of April, in the Cabell/Arehart Gallery is presenting “Facets,” a four part exhibit featuring the work of Karen K. Rosasco, nationally known workshop presenter. Having devoted her whole career to teaching others, Karen is not a “studio artist” with one vision or style. As a public school teacher for 31 years, with 18 years of advising high school students on their college portfolios, she enabled her pupils to receive scholarships from the country’s top art colleges. Karen has taught watermedia and design to adults for 36 years in both local weekly classes and week-long workshops across the US and Canada. For 16 years she led adult art history and sketching tours to six continents, always finding motivations in travel, nature and societal issues, Karen explores many themes with her use of layered watermedia achieving a highly textured and dynamic presentation. An avid shape-maker Karen concentrates on the relationships between the basic elements of art and while methods, materials and themes change, a consistently strong composition and design holds the viewer’s eye. An opening reception will be held April 1, 6 – 8pm. The public is invited to come, meet, and talk to the artist.
