New Work: Kay Brathol Hostvet & George Lowe
Working primarily in soft pastel, Kay Brathol Hostvet renders regional landscapes infused with her affection for and fascination with her Midwestern home. Each painting is inspired by a specific place and time, serving as visual record of the landscape it depicts often suggesting the deep history these bucolic scenes hold. Iowan ceramicist, George Lowe, creates hand-made functional work that emphasizes ceramic’s inherent tactile nature. Though he is inspired by ancient pottery and traditional folk art, Lowe strives to create work that is designed to invite contemporary use and enhance daily life.
