The Westport Book Shop is pleased to welcome local artist Kat Evans as guest exhibitor for the month of February 2023, at the Book Shop’s Drew Friedman Art Place.
Kat is exhibiting three of her recent luminous Color Field paintings: one 48”x 36” painting, and two 20”x 20” collages of painted canvas cutouts affixed to a painted canvas base.
Kat Evans’ vibrant, large-scale paintings are a celebration of the expressive possibilities of color. Inspired by Josef Albers and the Color Field Movement, Kat creates vibrant paintings with luminous hues and raucous color. Using bold brush strokes and often collage effects, she explores the interplay of color and texture to evoke an emotional response in each composition.
Kat's artwork has been shown in numerous juried solo and group exhibitions, and her paintings can be found in collections throughout the U.S., Europe, Japan and Mexico. Kat is a member of the Artists Collective of Westport, as well as the Rowayton Arts Center and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.
Kat’s artwork will be on exhibit at the Book Shop through February 28, 2023. All artwork on display is available for purchase.
The Book Shop’s “Drew Friedman Art Place” is an area of the store dedicated to exhibiting the work of community artists year-round, on a rotating basis. Miggs Burroughs, a Trustee of the Drew Friedman Community Arts Center, and a founding member of The Artists Collective of Westport, is curating the Book Shop's art exhibits, which change monthly.
