“What Transcends” Andrea Kemp

 

Glenwood Springs native Andrea Kemp is bringing her figurative painting back to the Roaring Fork Valley from Denver when Colorado Mountain College’s ArtShare Gallery exhibits her work. An opening reception will be held on Sept. 12 from 6 to 8 p.m., and Kemp’s paintings will be on view at the gallery Sept. 4-Oct. 27.

Kemp has local roots but she is developing into an artist with worldly appeal. The June/July 2014 issue of International Artist magazine features an overview of Kemp’s process and philosophies on painting. Her paintings of nudes, vegetables, flowers, interiors and landscapes often feature ultra-realistic images so precise they can look like photographs. Her work is primarily shown in Denver, and she was also featured in 2006 at the CMC ArtShare Gallery.

The Colorado Mountain College ArtShare Gallery is at 802 Grand Ave., Glenwood Springs. Contact 947-8367 for more information.
