CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Artist Delaire Rowe of Bowling Green, Ky., will hold an art exhibit at Campbellsville University’s Art Gallery Oct. 12-30 displayed mixed media.
The art gallery is located at 205 University Drive. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Rowe has worked as an artist for her entire adult life. “This exhibit represents a transition from pure painting in oil to a mixed media process including painting, drawing and collage,” Rowe said of her exhibit.
“I have experimented with a variety of media including acrylics and acrylic mediums, markers, papers, found objects etc.,” she said.
The collection is of work she has created over the last four or five years in addition to examples of earlier works.
“The newer work is strongly influenced by my renewed interest in basic design, observation of the natural world and study of art history,” she said.
“In my artistic career I have gone through many stages as I have grown artistically and personally. Both have influenced the development of my style and process,” she said.
Rowe has been a resident of Bowling Green for the last 30 years where she works as the visual arts coordinator and teaching artist for VSA arts of Kentucky. She also teaches kindergarten through sixth grade at St. Joseph School in Bowling Green.
Originally born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, Rowe received her bachelor of fine arts degree in painting and drawing from Indiana University, than continued her studies at Brooklyn College, City University of New York, where she received her master of fine arts degree in painting and drawing.
Rowe has also exhibited at Memphis Marsha’s Gallery in Bowling Green and Gallery on the Square in Franklin. Rowe has two exhibits on display: “Side by Side Statewide Exhibition” at the Kentucky Museum and her “One World Many Faces” at the ArtsACCESS gallery in Bowling Green.
Rowe said, “I am so pleased to have been invited to show my work at Campbellsville University. I hope you, the viewer, will enjoy the colors, textures, designs and images in my work too.”
