Art Reception: Coastal Colors by Karen Sosa

  • Date: 04/05/2019 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Karen Sosa has been painting for more than 30 years. She studied art while in college, then went on to a successful career in book conservation. Since moving to North Carolina 3 years ago, she has rededicated herself to painting full-time. Karen grew up on Martha’s Vineyard, a small island off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and worked on a vegetable farm for 10 years. She draws inspiration from the memories of walking under piers, tiptoeing through beach grass, feeling the wind on a cold beach, and smelling the earth as she plowed the fields. She uses color as the central component in her art, weaving its emotional impact with her connection to the land. Karen lives in Chapel Hill with her husband, son, and two dogs.
