September 2023 Demonstration by Kathy Armstrong!
September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Announcing our September 2023 Season Opening in person demonstration by Rochester, NY artist, and NFWS Signature Member, Kathy Armstrong!
Her demonstration will follow a short NFWS Members Meeting where we will all be caught up to date on the events of the summer, and hear about the year to come.
Kathy Armstrong says that of all the media she paints in, watercolor is her favorite because its transparent nature makes it possible to achieve a luminosity that isn’t possible with other mediums. In addition to her studio painting
Kathy enjoys plein air painting in oil, and some of her largest paintings have been done in acrylic. Kathy teaches watercolor classes both in-person and virtually throughout the year.
After a long career as a graphic designer in Wisconsin and Colorado, Kathy returned to her native upstate New York in 2013, moving to Rochester in late 2017. She is a Signature member of the Philadelphia Water Color Society, Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society and the Rochester Art Club and paints outdoors with the Greater Rochester Plein Air Painters. Her work has been juried into international, national and regional shows. Armstrong has been juried into the Memorial Art Gallery’s Rochester/Finger Lakes Exhibition three consecutive times, winning the Alice E. Koret Award in 2019. She is one of the founding members of Pittsford Fine Art gallery at 4 Main Street in Pittsford, NY.
“When light touches the world it immediately brings it to life. It shapes and illuminates everything in its path. Trying to capture that light is the driving force behind my love of painting,” says Kathy.
