  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) August 04, 2010 - The Woodshed Gallery in Franklin, Massachusetts will present the first solo exhibition of original fine art paintings by Franklin artist Kathe Kirchmyer August 10 thru September 3, 2010. This is the fifth in a series of exhibitions to showcase outstanding local artists. The public is invited to an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, August 14th, from 3PM to 5PM.

    This exhibition is the first opportunity for Boston-area residents to view an extended range of Kathe Kirchmyer's landscape paintings. Over thirty watercolor paintings will be displayed in this solo exhibition.

    Kathe Kirchmyer is dedicating her exhibition to her late husband, Thomas, who "interrupted my original journey in art, and then pushed me to embark on it again."

    Kathe Kirchmyer, who is a 37-year Franklin Resident, started painting before she got married and began on a career as a Registered Nurse and Administrative Nurse Manager at Caritas Norwood Hospital. After resigning in 2008, she returned her attention to art and began studying with Franklin area artists Avairs Zandsberg and Sara Alexander.

    Her skills developed rapidly, and she became a member of the Franklin Art Association and the Blackstone Valley Art Association. Her paintings have been included in several exhibitions including the Audibon Society-Broadmoor Exhibition in Natick, The Hopedale Cultural Society, and Norfolk Cultural Council.

    About her paintings, she says, "Art is a journey. Like life, it is full of transitions, changing focus, changing skills, changing vision."

    Kathe Kirchmyer's exhibition is part of an ongoing program by The Woodshed Gallery. The program is designed to present the community with the opportunity to view world-class art being created by their neighbors. The program also helps emerging artists take control of their presentations and advance their careers.

    The Woodshed Picture Framing and Art Gallery was founded by professional artist Angelina Wood in 1968, and continues to be a family-run business. They specialize in conservation picture framing and the exhibition of original fine art. The Woodshed Gallery also shows a selection of hand-crafted jewelry, gift items and oriental rugs.

    The Woodshed Gallery is located at 1243 Pond Street, Franklin, MA, near the Medway Line. Gallery hours are Tuesdays thru Fridays, 10AM-5PM, Saturdays 10AM-3PM.
