August 24, 2016 - September 20, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday, August, 27, 3-5 pm. Public Welcome, Refreshments served!

Rose Klebes loves to create, no matter what the media. You may know her best for her mosaic work – from 3D wallpieces to benches and tables – that she has displayed over the years at Valley Artisans Market. But over the last 40 years of making art, she has worked in oils, moved into watercolors and then switched to acrylics and mosaic, and is now back working in oils for her show of paintings of Washington County from August 24 to September 20.

For Rose, the act of creating, and not necessarily the end result, brings her the greatest satisfaction. She has elevated that feeling by painting “plein air,” which she finds the most satisfying because of her love of nature and living and painting in the gorgeous Battenkill Valley.

Rose has been influenced by all the famous artists, especially Picasso, but also by local Cambridge artists and how they feel when they talk about their art. Rose shares this passion about her creations and is always excited when she talks about art and her work. We hope you will feel this passion when you view her show.
