Art, like literature, can create beautiful worlds or transport us to distant destinations. In the exhibit, “Dreams of Faraway Places”, Karen Koch creates colorful art that tells stories of places we love, both real and imagined.
Her art leads you from the forests of Oregon to Canal du Midi in France to the center of New Orleans. Along the route are imaginary gardens, waterfalls, tropical coves, and southwest mesas.
The artist creates rich, textured work using paint, paper, thread, buttons, plastic, and much more. You will spot old dictionaries, encyclopedias, textbooks, and roadmaps in many of the artworks. She loves taking items that have outlived their usefulness and giving them a second chance at life in her art.
