Artist's Reception, Sunday, September 18th, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
For the month of September, the Library will show a number of new paintings by Karl Knoecklein which come from the artist's renewed interest in landscape painting. The oil and acrylic works begin with experiments in random and ordered colors and progress to landscapes.
Long horizontal landscapes and riverscapes built of stacked lineal bands of foreground, river, hills and sky are the ground for exploration of the traditional landscape form with elemental color units. The artist's previous works investigated topography and distance through outdoor installations and perception of smell and the artist's memory with an active gallery installation .
