Burk and Whitehouse @ Artists’ Gallery

Glass artist Kathy Burk and oil painter Kitty Whitehouse will be displaying new work during the month of July at the Artists’ Gallery in The Emerson. Join the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of Friday, July 8th from 5-8 p.m., during the Bozeman Downtown Art Walk.

This spring, Kathy Burk has been experimenting with layers of color influenced by surrounding rivers and streams.   Looking through the water into the riverbed she is fascinated with the patterns you can see while observing this force of nature. Burk has captured the natural depth and distortion of the rivers with layers of glass and found items from these waterways.   Her kiln formed pieces were created by layering many colors creating designs that represent different species of fish found in the area.

Kitty Whitehouse loves painting wildlife in oils. She often travels to national parks in North America and East Africa to observe wildlife in its habitat first hand, and to attain her own reference photos. Now in the Bozeman area, Whitehouse has found plenty to paint close to home as well. She is a signature member of the Artists for Conservation group, where a percentage of her sales are donated to non-profit environmental organizations to help protect wildlife and habitats.

Wilbert and Burk creations @ Artists’ Gallery

The Artists’ Gallery in the Emerson is pleased to introduce Ann Wilbert and Kathy Burk, our featured artists for the month of May. We invite you to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception on the evening of the Emerson’s Art Walk, Friday, May 14th from 5-8 p.m.

Ann Wilbert will be showing her recent glass bead creations with an emphasis on shapes and colors that echo the look of natural stones. Kathy Burk incorporates steel, glass, found items and objects from nature to create her mosaic collages, merging her organic design with a mechanical style. She is intrigued with the constant challenge of creating both functional art and exploring the creative properties of art glass. Burk uses color, texture, depth and design to capture her audience. Nothing goes to waste and light is always considered.
