Married artists Steve Emery & Kathleen Lipinski have collaborated and worked individually and within our community for over thirty-five years. They began their professional careers in the early 1980's with a series of serigraphs (silk screen prints) of Marin landscapes.
Currently, Kathleen paints in oil on canvas to create complex, large format paintings of Marin. Her art combines a love of nature with dedication to realism, attention to detail, and a focus on capturing the quality of light. Kathleen's shows include the Triton Museum, Morris Graves Museum and Jenkins-Johnson Gallery in San Francisco and New York. Her work has been featured at Marin/Scapes and at the Sausalito Art Festival.
Steve has maintained two bodies of work throughout his career, in drawing, printmaking, and primarily acrylic painting. His landscapes of Marin and the Sierra focus on intimate, abstract details in nature. His "lyrical" work combines light, color, time and movement into complex and beautiful paintings.
West Gallery: Retrospective. Early serigraphs (silk screen prints) designed by Kathleen & printed collaboratively with Steve. Early sketches and art by both artists. Artists will produce photo displays of the sequence of prints over 20 years as well as a "progression", illustrating the silk screen process.
East Gallery: Contemporary paintings & prints by Kathleen.
Middle Gallery: Contemporary paintings by Steve in two styles: landscape realism and "Lyrical" (somewhat abstract).
