CEDARBURG, WI (September 18, 2018): The Cedarburg Cultural Center welcomes local artist, Kathy Waldo, as Artist-in-Residence for the month of October.
“Whenever I go into my studio, I feel a sense of calm. I consider making art an escape for myself. The colors I use express my feelings that day. I enjoy making abstract art as it frees my soul.” – Kathy Waldo
Kathy Waldo is a self-taught artist who also enjoys taking local art classes. She became an artist later in life after realizing one Spring morning that she needed to create. To paint. She paints in cold wax, oils, acrylics, mixed media and alcohol inks. The love of learning to work with each new medium and testing its limits has been her muse. She’s undeclared in terms of choosing a favorite medium. Most recently she has focused on alcohol ink paintings. She is drawn to the brilliance and concentration of color in this medium and experiments on a variety of substrates.
Don’t miss the opportunity to talk with Kathy about how she began her art career and allow yourself to be inspired to ‘take up the torch’ and find your own way as an artist. Take a seat and watch as she demonstrates the willingness to let go of the outcome with these inks. She will be at the CCC Noon to 5pm on Thursdays, October 4, 11, 18, 25 and Wednesday, October 24.
