ARTIST’S RECEPTION at THE FARM BISTRO
34 W Main Street, Cortez Colorado
Sunday June 2nd, 5 -6 pm
The Farm Bistro is hosting a reception for local artist Kathleen King on Sunday, June 2 from 5 – 6 pm. You are invited to join us for light refreshments, conversation with the artist, and an up close and personal look at some really fun art! Below is Kathleen’s bio, I hope you can attend!
Kathleen King grew up in the sleepy coastal town of Pacific Beach, just north of San Diego, where she began her career as a public muralist in 1983. The artist has designed, coordinated and executed over 75 murals for public, commercial and private spaces throughout the southwest over the past 30 years. In addition, Ms. King has developed and conducted mural making programs for advanced art students in several inner city school districts. The artist also has created an extensive body of work on canvas including privately commissioned pieces.
As an avid cyclist it was only a matter of time before King’s love of the bike made it’s way onto her canvases and in 2008 the Bike Scribble was born. Her distinctively stylized interpretation of the joy of bicycling has been embraced by the cycling community worldwide in murals, as book illustration, jewelry and apparel art, and logo design. Many of King’s public projects have become local landmarks
In a widely diverse career, Kathleen King has worked in film, theater, television, event and media design. Her work always has an eye and ear to the political, prescient and avant-garde with a wink and a nod for absurdity, whimsy and fun.
