The Artists’ Gallery at the Emerson invites the public to a reception for painters Kitty Whitehouse and Linda Williams, to be held on Friday, July 10 from 5 to 8 PM. Their works will be on display from June 29 through July 27.
Whitehouse will be showing her latest oil paintings of both landscapes and wildlife, many of which are of local scenes that Bozeman residents will recognize. Williams will be featuring new oil paintings of classically inspired still-lifes and plein-air studies of Montana’s western landscapes.
Kitty Whitehouse – Landscape and Wildlife Artist
Kitty Whitehouse has an art degree from the University of New Hampshire as well as having studied western landscapes, lighting, and techniques with several local and nationally known artists. Working primarily in oils, her subjects are usually horses, wildlife, and the Montana and Yellowstone landscapes. However, her paintings are usually about the light, using the subjects to portray an emotion, a unique lighting condition, or time of day. Many of her latest paintings are of local scenes that Bozeman residents will recognize.
Linda Williams – Landscape and Still-Life Painter
Linda was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in New York, New Orleans, and Memphis. She graduated Phi Kappa Phi from MSU with a degree in Fine Arts, receiving the Strand Award. She was included in the “35 Important American Women Artists” show in July 1992 at Saks Gallery in Denver and currently resides in Bozeman, Montana. Over the last few years she has been sharpening her skills in oils paints through “plein-air” studies and still-life works.
