Opening Reception for "Oil and Water" Exhibition.

"Oil and Water".

The Artists' Cooperative Gallery will feature artists Linda Hatfield and Katrina Methot-Swanson for their colorful feature show "Oil & Water" from February 27 to March 31, 2018. The Artists will host an Artists Reception on First Friday, March 2, 2018 from 5:30-9:00 pm

Artist Linda Hatfield works with a combination of acrylic paint and pyrography applied in multiple layers. Pyrography describes applying lines with heat, in this case a wood burning tool. Her work has been exhibited and sold in galleries Nationally and Internationally and is in the permanent collection of the William Breman Museum in Atlanta GA as well as the Omaha Children’s Museum in Omaha NE. The work has appeared in various magazines and on HGTV. Her quirky style and bright colors often illustrate an interesting turn of phrase or social issue. She works like an illustrator in that the title is usually first and an image follows.

Artist Katrina Methot-Swanson does realistic oil paintings of interesting vintage stuff and urban scenes of Omaha’s Old Market and the surrounding areas. She loves to paint cool restaurant signs and illustrate the age and wear on places and items. Memories of childhood play a large part in what she chooses to paint. Her lawn chair paintings bring up memories of her Grandmother and conversations on her porch.
