   December 2016 - Artist of the Month 

Karen Klinedinst  

Please Note:
Saturday December 17, 2016
 - 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. 
Karen Klinedinst will be doing a demo of how to use your 
iphones and ipads for wildlife photography
 
 
Klinedinst describes her camera work as “landscapes influenced by 19th century Romanticism” - captured and recreated “with 21st century technology.” She uses both an iPhone and an iPad which enable her to record images “unencumbered by a heavy camera.” Additionally, she writes, these tools make it possible to manipulate the images and express her emotional response to the landscape - rather than present only a realistic image.  See images of Klinedinst's work on her web site - karenklinedinst.com/patuxent-nature-refuge/

Klinedinst was born in central Pennsylvania and recalls that much of her childhood was spent drawing, painting and photographing surrounding landscapes. She moved to Baltimore to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art. Since earning her BFA, she has lived and exhibited there, although she has travelled extensively and branched out regionally.

She has received a great deal of recognition and numerous awards - including “Artist in Residence” - twice - once in Acadia (Maine) and once in the Catskills, any number of “Juror’s Choice” or “Best in Show” for her lovely work. Not only has Klinedinst exhibited widely, she has taught workshops in technique in several locations including Chestertown River Arts Gallery, Ridgely (Adkins Arboretum) and at her Baltimore studio. 
   
And Don't Miss... 
Unique and lovely Peruvian carvings of birds from semi-precious stones will be featured in our display cases. Fellow-countryman, Giancarlo Readi, who worked closely with an artistic family near Lima, and who designed some of the pieces, is making them available for us to enjoy.
