Kowch’s 12 paintings are part of the Muskegon Museum of Art’s new Made in Michigan Artists series and builds upon the MMA’s longstanding tradition of featuring some of the finest creations in visual media by contemporary Michigan artists.
Kowch has been described as a “powerful voice emerging, demonstrating a highly sensitive consciousness that informs a culturally-laced symbolism.” Her paintings, book illustrations and works on paper are rich in mood, allegory and precision of medium, reflecting a wealth of influences from Northern Renaissance and American art to the rural landscapes and vernacular architecture of her native Michigan.
The public is invited to attend an opening reception and talk by the artists on August 15. The reception begins at 5:30 p.m. and the talk begins at 7 p.m.. The event is free.
