The second art exhibit of the year will open at Oxford’s 6 On The Square on Wednesday. The art of Katie Thomas, an artist and teacher, will be featured with an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit of a myriad of works from watercolor paintings to engravings will run through May 31.
Thomas lives in Greene. According to a media release, Thomas is influenced by memories, the experiences of those closest to her and from her visuals created from stories. The artistic expressions range from an illustrative to realistic style. Some of the processes she uses are dry point etching, engravings, mono prints as well as water color and colored pencil.
She grew up in the Adirondack Mountains. She received her Master of Arts degree in studio art with a concentration in printmaking from Marywood University in Pennsylvania in 2006, and has taught various ages of children art since 2003. She became Oxford Academy’s primary school art instructor in 2010.
Thomas has exhibited in Unitarian Universalist Church in Oneonta; in the Rude and Bold Women’s Art Show; the First Friday Art Walk in Binghamton; Silent Summer Nights, and the Most Wanted Fine Art Show of Pittsburgh, Pa.
At the reception, Thomas will be on hand to answer any questions. The exhibit can also be viewed at 6OTS one hour before and during performances. For more information, call Kim Begeal, 6 On The Square’s gallery coordinator, at 843-6876. 6 On The Square is at 6 Lafayette Park
