Eagle City Hall Display Case: Charles Haman
Eagle City Hall Gallery: Katheryn Mechigian
Artist statement: "Kathryn’s love of the outdoors inspires her art as she strives to capture nature’s beauty with her paintbrush. Returning to her home state of Idaho last year after twenty years in Oregon, she has been inspired by Idaho’s varied landscapes, rich colors and rugged beauty. Transitioning between oil to acrylic, she focuses on rich, deep colors in her paintings that are a reflection of the intensity of the vibrant colors seen outdoors and interpreting them in a way that captures the calm beauty on canvas. Kay has studied under William Park, Kirsten Vollum and Kevin McCain and shown her work at The Grove in Lake Oswego, Oregon."
