Oakland artist Kevin Woodson will exhibit a collection of brand new winter and spring 2014 watercolors of spring flowers, painted in the parks and gardens of Oakland and the Bay Area. The exhibit will run March 1 – March 30, 2014 at Galleria Scola with an opening reception Thursday March 6 from 5-9 PM, in conjunction with First Thursday’s on Grand Avenue.
Kevin’s Flowers are special because as an artist, flowers are his exclusive focus. Kevin paints flowers in the gardens where they grow, painting every day, and often returning to the same flower year after year. His dedication to nature, flowers, and culture is clear in every painting. In order to paint the entire magical and botanical experience of the flower, Kevin forgoes photography, pencil, and does not use cut flowers. Spending time with Kevin’s work, you immediately see that his paintings are unique, like doorways into our collective human dream of nature.
