Raffle Tickets Available For "Monarch"

July 13, 2015

"Monarch" is a block print pieced together with a collage of stamps from around the world, appropriate considering the long migration patterns of the monarch butterfly. The R. Waldo Tyler Wildlife Management Area along the ‘Weskeag River boasts stands of milkweed, so important to the beauty of our local landscape and the monarch’s survival. In celebration of art and conservation, this piece will be auctioned off to benefit the Georges River Land Trust during The Kelpie Gallery’s “Wet Paint on the ‘Weskeag!” event.

Tickets to win the matted and framed piece are $20 each & benefit the Georges River Land Trust

Tickets are available now at The Kelpie Gallery, as well as Primrose Framing in Rockland. You can call The Kelpie Gallery at 207.691.0392 or 207.691.3416 or contact us via email.You do not need to attend to win.

“Monarch” has been generously donated by the artist Katharine Owens, and matting and framing services are courtesy of Primrose Framing, Rockland.

About The Artist: Katharine Owens

My art, like my research, examines the relationships between humans and the environment. I use simple tools and processes in my home studio (all hand-wrought, no printing presses) to create wood and linoleum block prints that reflect the intersection of humankind and nature.

My work has been shown at the New Britain Museum of American Art, the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History (a Smithsonian affiliate), the Wesleyan Potters Annual Show and Sale, MAC650 Gallery, and at Middletown Framing as a part of the North End Gallery Walk.

This event happily supports the Georges River Land Trust.

The Georges River Land Trust’s mission is to conserve the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region through permanent land protection, stewardship, education, and outdoor experiences. The Kelpie Gallery supports them in their mission as well as supporting the artists who use the watershed as their muse.
