Water Coming Soon to Cooperative Gallery 213 October 6th
Carolyn Gilligan is inspired by WATER
Carolyn Gilligan has a deep connection to moving water and she finds watercolor is the perfect medium to use to paint water. Ocean shorelines, waterfalls, and streams, are a few of the subjects she has painted to show the beauty of water in motion. Carolyn has been painting in watercolor since her collage days and has learned to both control it and let it do beautiful things on paper or a plastic kind of paper called Yupo. Yupo does not absorb paint. That means brighter color and less control, at least at first. Carolyn has discovered new techniques that yield exciting effects. By layering semitransparent Yupo with an under paper she has found a way to show what is under water. All are invited to her artist’s talk at 6:30 pm on Thursday, October 6th when she and Joanne Arnold open their exhibit of new paintings at their artists’ reception at the Cooperative Gallery 213, 213 State St. Binghamton, NY. All are invited to the reception between 6-8 pm. The show continues on 1st Friday Oct. 7th from 3-9 and on Fridays from 3-6 and Saturdays from 12-4 or by appointment through the month of October.
