Karen Owsley Nease

Today Radio Gallery shares the work of local painter Karen Owsley Nease opening a new show at the Duluth Art Institute called "Found Horizons."   This body of work is clean and uncomplicated at first glance but upon investigation reveals depth and complexities beyond your expectations.  You can hear more from the artist at her gallery talk happening the day the show opens, Thursday April 30 at 5:30 p.m. or  at the joint reception on May 14, 5-7 p.m.  But we are happy to share some inside perspective about the paintings of Karen Owsley Nease this week on Radio Gallery.
