Foundry Gallery: Touch Points

Katherine Blakeslee’s watercolors evoke touch points from nature and places called home.  This show’s works reflect images from across the world.  Common elements shared by all -- air, water, earth and fire -- are brought together in different combinations, reflecting diversity, yet familiarity, places at which to pause and see and feel.  The evanescence of weather reflects the changing nature of life, while homes and enduring views root and connect generations.  Blakeslee hopes to evoke feeling and thought about the linkages between the small daily worlds we inhabit and the large planet we share.
 Fascinated by connections between peoples and elements, including the magic line that both divides and unites the sky, water and earth, the artist sees divisions, not only as lines, but also as links.   From the northern skies to the Vietnamese watersand the houses of Morocco, the color blue appears in most of her paintings.
