Feature Artist Bio
By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the second of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by American painter
Kathy Fox Weinberg (born 1948 in Minnesota, USA).
Kathy Fox Weinberg is a "second wind" emerging painter and instructor whose work explores the intersection of art, nature and landscape to capture the spiritual depth of the soul of her subjects. Fox's fascination with art began when she made a wrong turn and found herself in the parking lot of an art supply house while on a work assignment in the vineyard country of Napa Valley, CA. Emerging with canvas and brushes in hand, she began her journey painting the Autumn vineyards. She says she was “hooked” and has continued as a professional artist after retiring from her career in finance. Largely self-taught, Fox continues to study with celebrated artists including Joe Pacquet, Hazel Belvo, Mary Pettis, Bonnie Paruch, Wilson Bickford, Johannes Vloothuis, Svagrik Gabor, Daniel Edmondson, Nancy Medina, and others.
The works of KFox are included in several public and private collections. She was awarded Artist of the Month by the North Tampa Arts League bringing her work to a wider audience at the City of Tampa Regional Libraries, the Carrollwood Center for the Arts, Grow Financial, and the Hunter's Green Country Club Exhibition. She won "Honorable Mention" in a 200-piece exhibition for her painting, The Ibis Rookery at Lettuce Lake, at the 10th annual juried show by the North Tampa Arts League. Her work, Morning on the Pond II, was recently juried into the North Star show at the White Bear Lake, MN Center for the Arts, featuring 48 installations from over 400 submissions.
While residing in Tampa, FL she co-founded the Tampa Plein Aire Artists and facilitated weekly paint-outs throughout the city. She facilitated the merger of this group into the North Tampa Arts League for ongoing coordination. She has coordinated a similar effort in Grand Marais, MN as the Arrowhead Sketchers of the Grand Marais Art Colony.
In 2015, Fox moved her studio, KFox Art, to the shores of Lake Superior near Lutsen, MN. She feels her Minnesota roots have called her home to paint the Boreal Forests and vistas of the North Shore and the Great Lake Superior. She teaches individual and group workshops from her studio, area galleries and plein air workshops on-site.
Fox is a member of the Grand Marais (MN) Art Colony, the North Tampa Arts League, Minnesota Outdoor Painters, the Tampa Plein Aire Painters, and a Signature member of the Oil Painters of America. Currently, KFox is working on a private commission and preparing a body of work for future exhibition at the Schroeder Historical Museum and the Art Along the Lake Fall Studio Tour.
Kathy Weinberg Fox's
“Wander into my paintings and breathe the air of the North Shore. Smell the pine needles in sunshine, hear the waves of the Great Superior, delight in fields of lupines, feel secure in the geologic time of ancient rocks and the skies that reveal what has been and what will come. Maybe you haven't been exactly to the spot in my painting, but still you are there. You've seen it before. You remember. You are called back to this special place. That, to me, is what I want my art to be about - an invitation to return, to remember, to leave a legacy of this place.
Whether painting outdoors or in the studio, I begin with transparent color, searching for composition, abstract shape, shadow, light, and inspiration. Transparent color allows me to see deeply into my subject and creates a roadmap. Then comes the opaque colors into which I can't see - either because the bounce of light is too intense, the shadows too deep or the structure too dense. Finally, I go to the questions - Warm or cool? Where is the soul that moved me to paint this subject? How much can I remove and still tell the story? Can the viewer wander in this space? As the answers play themselves out by my brush on canvas, I finally must stop. No painting is ever done. I just stop so I can begin again.”
