Lunch Date at Old Chicago 40 x 30.jpg

Katrina Swanson Solo Exhibition

Artist Member Katrina Swanson is the Featured Artist from January 29, 2019 to February 24, 2019 at the Artists Cooperative Gallery, 405 South 11th Street in Omaha’s Old Market.  Katrina will host a First Friday Opening Reception on February 1 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.

 Katrina has been painting for over 30 years. She started out as a watercolor artist, painting realistic flowers and still life’s.  Several years ago Katrina taught herself to paint with oils, she has been working in oils for 15 years now. She is inspired by the work of hyper realist artist Richard Estes and is attracted to the moodiness and colorful work of Edward Hopper. “They inspired me to search for interesting light, repeating shapes and deep shadows. Often what I'm looking for is close to home in Omaha's Old Market. Exploring with my camera, I am captured by light, deep shadow, evoked feeling and repeating shapes. Back in my studio, the photographs help me transfer the kaleidoscope of feeling, colors, shapes and shadow to my canvas in the form of architectural scenes, vintage neon signs, old bicycles and chairs.”
