Artist News Brief

Karen Hunting, a long time UUCMP member, will be showing her art the next two months in our entry-way “gallery.” Originally scheduled for two years ago, it was postponed until now due to the pandemic.

Karen’s show, “Layers”, demonstrates the interplay and flow of colors, textures and shapes evoking visions personal to each viewer.

Through the layering application of transparent and opaque elements of paint, paper, cloth and clay, a strong vibrant whole is created.

Whether they be the large abstract acrylics or the smaller clays on paper and cloth, the pieces in this show endeavor to bring reflection on color, texture, shape and movement connections to give a full visual concert.

A degree in Graphic Design from Michigan State University, professional work as a graphic designer and art director and years with her own graphic design and wordsmithing studio provided the groundwork for her style to flourish. Once in California Karen began winning awards for some of her more whimsical three-dimensional work in wood, clay and gourds. Other facets of Ms. Hunting’s journey have included being an art director, marketing and public relations director, photography and art archivist, published author, featured artist in one woman shows and in group shows, chamber of commerce visitor center manager, art center board member, studio artist, contributing artist for fundraiser events and professional artist teacher in elementary schools programs. • 831 594 0421 • P.O.
