Art Gallery Reception
Karen Branen, a local artist, will have art on display at the University Club of Winter Park from August 1 through October 29. A reception will be held on Sunday, October 6 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Karen Branen currently lives and works in Orlando but she was born in Massachusetts and grew up in Miami. It was there that she developed her love of the natural and constructed environment, which is the thread running through her artwork. Her visual journey began at Miami-Dade College, continuing to Florida Atlantic University where she earned a B.A. in Art and an Art Certificate of Community Arts. During her teaching of art she was introduced to pastels in a workshop led by Victor Richardson of Ireland. It was during classes with Leonard Koscianski that combined pastel with working outdoors that connected her art with the environment. Her plein air work is done with soft pastels and is a dialogue or conversation with the subject focusing on a detail of the world around her.
