A watercolor by Cameron University Professor of Art Katherine Liontas-Warren has been selected for inclusion in the 34th annual Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors, considered one of the top 10 national watercolor exhibits. The juried exhibition is presented by View Art Center in Old Forge, N.Y. and runs through October 5.
Liontas-Warren’s watercolor is an original 22”x15” rendering titled “Creek Near Quanah Parker Lake.”
“During this past year, my work has taken a new direction,” says Liontas-Warren. “I am spending more time as a plein air (painting in outdoor daylight) watercolor painter in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Painting outdoors has enabled me to experience the sounds, textures, and scents of this majestic environment while recording a visual yet subjective interpretation of the terrain. Many of these new watercolors reflect seasonal changes that occur during storms and droughts. This painting symbolizes a prolonged drought season with a sudden downpour of rain from last May.”
