New Visions Gallery to showcase artist Rebecca Korth
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Rebecca Korth, who describes herself as a “realism artist,” will have 26 of her works on exhibit from Jan. 11 through Feb. 26 during a solo show at New Visions Gallery. An opening reception will be held Sunday, Jan. 10, from 1-3 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
Korth spoke about her training in her artist statement: “I’ve been expressing myself through art for as long as I can remember. By the time I reached high school, I took as many art classes as possible. My college years were spent studying a little bit of everything, but painting always stayed with me. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Arts degree, I decided to travel to Oregon to study art with my aunt Sandee Burman. I moved back to Wisconsin in 2005 and have been continually learning new techniques and theories ever since. In August of 2011 I got married and changed my signature to Rebecca Korth after seven years of signing Rebecca Nycz.”
In regards to her approach, she said, “I will never take a painting to the point of photorealism. I love the charm of a well composed painting when it actually looks like a painting and not a photograph.” Korth’s works range in size from a grand 72” x 36” down to a charming 5” x 7”. That range will be on exhibit during this show.
School and community group tours are available for this exhibit, made possible in part through a grant from the Marshfield Area Community Foundation. Interested parties should contact New Visions Gallery to schedule a date and time.
“Rebecca Korth: Still Life in Oils” can be viewed 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday–Friday at New Visions Gallery, located in the main lobby of Marshfield Clinic, 1000 N. Oak Ave., Marshfield. Admission is free thanks in part to donations from ART PARTNERS. Exhibit space and other support is donated by Marshfield Clinic.
