530 Burns Gallery presents a solo exhibition of work by Kathe Fraga. The paintings feature patterns, botanicals, color and hidden motifs, inspired by the romance of vintage Chinoiserie. The show runs from March 8 to 20 and an opening reception is held at the Gallery on Friday, March 8 from 6 to 9PM, with an opportunity to meet the artist. The Gallery is located at 530 Burns Ln, Sarasota FL 34236.
Kathe Fraga lives in an 100-year-old home on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, a space from which she derives inspiration. She paints the dynamic expression of old-meets-new. Fraga says, “the old floorboards of our home, milled from the surrounding trees, remind me on a daily basis of the love and gentle patina of time.” Fraga is known for her unique use of frescoed panel, creating the subtle and weathered texture that lays the foundation for bold swatches of color, layered with dappled florals and motifs that conjure feelings of nature’s romantic beauty.
530 Burns Gallery celebrates one year of representing Kathe Fraga. Nikki Sedacca, gallery owner, says, “our entire team and clients were astounded by the works’ ability to pull at our emotional heartstrings.” Fraga has quickly become one of the gallery’s most highly sought after artists because of her unique take on the beauty of the world around her.
530 Burns Gallery is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 10PM. For more information about this exhibit, call 941-951-0620 or visit www.530burnsgallery.com.
