The Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson is thrilled present new artwork by oil painters, Kara Fellows-Tripp and Kitty Whitehouse, our featured artists for the month of June. We invite you to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of Friday, June 11th from 5-8 p.m., during Downtown Bozeman’s first Art Walk of the season.
Kara Fellows-Tripp is a native of Montana, born and raised in Bozeman. In 2002 she graduated from MSU with a degree in Chemical Engineering, but instead of pursuing a career in that field she chose to focus her attention on art. Although initially a jewelry designer, she enjoyed experimenting with other mediums, which led her to painting. She now paints exclusively in oils and her work is representational. Most of her pieces depict farm and ranch landscapes or themes. She would love to explore portraiture next. Kara’s work can be seen in the Artists’ Gallery located in the Emerson Cultural center in Bozeman and at The Two Rivers Gallery in Big Timber, MT.
After making the Gallatin Valley her permanent home a few years ago, Kitty Whitehouse has furthered her artistic talents by painting the wildlife and scenes of the West. Most of her painting is done in oils, though she occasionally works in watercolor or colored pencil, as each piece is done according to how she envisions the final artwork. Her favorite place is Yellowstone Park, with its geothermal wonders, varied scenery, and of course, the wildlife. Some of her Yellowstone paintings and other local Montana scenes will be on display at The Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson during the month of June.
