Ken Karlic, “Sophisticated Chaos”
June14, 2017, 7:30pm
Maryland Hall room 205
For our guest artist for June, we are fortunate to have an insight into the artistic perspective of Ken Karlic. His demonstration will focus on his signature style known as “sophisticated chaos,” where an accurate drawing gives way to a spontaneous application of paint to create a beautiful mess.
Ken is a nationally recognized and award-winning watercolorist, and new member of Annapolis Watercolor Club. He paints both plein-air and in the studio, with a sense of urgency and passion that is more about capturing the essence rather than the specifics of any location. His enthusiasm for painting is contagious, and he enjoys teaching students from beginner to advanced. He has won several awards including most recently in 2016–Best of Show in New Hope PA, Best Naval Category in Paint Annapolis and Honorable Mention in Buck’s County Plein Air. Ken is represented locally by McBride Gallery in Annapolis, MD, and Y:ART Gallery in Baltimore, MD. He is a Signature Artist Member of Baltimore Watercolor Society and a Signature Artist Member of Noyes Museum of Art in New Jersey
Ken is a weekly instructor for “Expressive and Fun Watercolor” in Stevensville, MD at the Chesapeake Fine Arts Studio. His class will begin in late July or early August. Also, Ken will be exhibiting at the McBride Gallery for a summer exhibition of watercolors, and has a one-person show the months of July-August in the Martino Gallery in Maryland Hall.

For those of you wanting to “loosen up” a little on your approach to art, this demonstration should be very interesting for you.
