“Water Works”

A group show with a coastal theme.

Featuring the work of Claire Kendrick, Doug Foltz, James Lewis and Ken Otsuka

“Living on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The high seas and big storm fronts remind me of my native home, Ireland, the North West Outpost of Europe. Those memories combined with the ferociousness of the weather fronts brings a depth and passion to my work, yet the stillness and peace of the southern shores is a soothing calm and is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.”

“Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and all its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater.”

Claire Kendrick has had the privilege to be mentored by American Contemporary Artist Anne Packard.

Artist Notes

“In 2012 Anne invited me to paint with her for 10 days at her home in Cape Cod. It is a huge honor for any artist when your painting speaks or evokes a reaction…. it’s a confirmation and validation that something’s there———–a spark to ignite! Painting is a lifelong quest and at over 80 years of age Anne is passionate and dedicated. I was struck and impressed that her daily quest is to improve her craft as an artist.
Painting can be one of the most heartbreaking and rewarding professions. Anne taught me that “the struggle” is a natural part of the process for a painter. She also taught me about stamina, discipline and fearlessness……the importance of bringing emotion, depth and passion into your work……….and that every brush mark helps define your creative style and helps you find you voice as an artist. There is a mood and emotion Anne Packard conveys in her painting that speaks to me and inspires me.” – CJK

A Selection of Paintings Exhibiting

Wishing everyone a very special 2014!

Water is a universal symbol of change and as we mark the end of one year and the beginning of another it seems fitting to share new works from my Seascape series with you. Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity.  A New Year marks change and optimism and watching the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. Capturing these special moments are my joy and challenge as an artist.

Wishing everyone a very special 2014!
