"Second Nature: Drawings by Karen Klein"
2003-10-05 until 2003-11-23
Muskegon Museum of Art
Muskegon, MI, USA United States of America

Detroit artist Karen Klein will exhibit about thirty of her watercolor and color pencil drawings at the Muskegon Museum of Art October 5 November 23, 2003. Klein will give a gallery talk at the museum Sunday, October 12 at 2:00 p.m. The public may meet the artist during a reception following the talk. Klein sees her work as rooted in nature but transformed by her interests, unique vision and creativity. Viewers are often attracted and even transfixed by the precision and detail of her drawings.

She does start with a careful and close study of nature, but transforms what she observes. Referring to the great artist James Abbott McNeil Whistler, Klein notes that as an artist she must arrange and harmonize into a glorious unity what she picks, gathers and chooses from the chaos of nature. Looking at her finished drawings, the viewer will be aware of, as Klein has said, an element of fantasy or whimsy that characterizes her finished drawings and reveals her unique turn of mind.
