Henry-Rahn Watercolor Exhibit
Henry-Rahn holds a degree in Psychology from Utica College, has earned the professional accreditation of CASAC (Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Counselor), and works in that capacity for various agencies in the central New York area. She credits her passion for painting to her friend and instructor, Catherine Bennett, who is herself, an accomplished watercolorist and collage artist.
Ric Henry-Rahn mainly works in watercolor, but occasionally creates pieces using acrylics and colored pencils. Most of her work portrays natural scenes, animals, and aging architectural structures. She has stated that she "strives in both her life and work to seek love, peace, gentleness, and beauty." Her work reflects those emotions while also capturing empathy for loneliness and sadness, at times. Viewers will note that the artist incorporates a small commercially available "sticker" image into each unique composition. Henry-Rahn says that she first began doing this for two reasons: the first being for "whimsy", the other, just for the pure fun of it. Now she includes the sticker image as her personal artist's "mark".
The public is invited to meet the artist and view her exhibit on Sunday, March 4, 2018, from 2 - 4 pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
The gallery is open Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10am to 2pm. Artists interested in displaying work at the Kallet may contact the office at 315-363-8525.
