Art Show Celebrated Work of Late Watercolorist


Michael Haynes Opened The Katherine Haynes Art Gallery For A Two Day Show.

It has been about two years since the Katherine Haynes Art Gallery has been open to the general public and the art show on September 19 and 20 was a welcome reminiscence and tribute to a beloved and inspirational artist and teacher.

The wood paneled showroom about a mile east of the airport on Highway 2 was lined with Katherine's work, a collection of landscapes, florals and outdoor close-ups in clean, fresh, vibrant colors. A distinctive feature of Katherine's work was her ability to combine realistic details with impressionistic forms. Michael Haynes matted and framed the art work in simple metallic frames that complemented the subject matter.

Wendy McClintock, who has a collection of 25 of Katherine's paintings, said, "Some of the paintings have never been seen before and are excellent."
Area art lovers gathered to peruse the art and discuss Katherine's technique and form. Exclamations of "beautiful," "gorgeous," and "elegant" were heard, and one attendee said "The water just looks wet. It seems like you could touch it" in response to one of Katherine's renditions of a local river.

"We've had a lot of art shows here over the years. We once sold $4,000 in six hours," chuckled Mike. "I may open the gallery again for a show in a year or so."
