"Using Middle America as her muse, Kowch draws the history of a particular place -- invariably rural -- to the surface as it collides with a new reality in layers of metaphor and moodiness. The faces of her women may remind you of characters in a Tim Burton film."

Work to be featured in "Spectrum 17" & American Art Collector Magazine!

I am proud to announce that In the Path of the Wind was selected to appear in Spectrum 17! The book comes out November 2010. I'm so honored to be shown among the group for a third time, and can't wait to see all the great stuff featured in its pages this year.

In other news, I've been (and still am) painting around the clock for my solo show at the gallery this summer. A total of 15 works will be on display, and the show opens this July. Needless to say, working to do all this in five months is exhausting, though working at such a constant pace keeps ideas fresh. I have about 5 more paintings to go, and little over one month left before I have to send them all off! Not to mention, there are a few very large ones (one as big as 4x5 ft.) and compositions that simply demand time and energy. It's been quite the trip so far, in a good way, and I am very much looking forward to unveiling all that I've been doing.

I'm also very excited to announce that American Art Collector Magazine will be featuring me in their upcoming June issue with an article and preview of the show! Keep your eye on the shelves to catch this next issue! Some of the new work I've been doing will be in it. Keep checking back here on the blog as well to see some sneak peeks I'll be posting soon as we get closer to the show date.

For now, it's back to the easel! :)
