West Reading Avenues Summer 2021 - 25

But the stars of Crystal's show will be simply the classic colors
and beauty of nature's bounty. Arrays of fruits, vegetables and
florals will be accompanied by an array of sizes, from large
pieces that can alone make a room, to small shelfies. She'll also
be branching out from her signature oils with watercolors and
some multi-media pieces.
September Featured Artist
KAREN WEBER
Remarkably versatile and
enthusiastically collected,
Karen Weber is best known
for her whimsical creations
that capture the unique
personalities and quirks of
diverse animals and familiar
objects. Her passion is to
create imagery that evokes
happines s and t ells a
completely original story.
Behind the light-hearted feel of Karen's paintings is a lot of
planning, work and experience. Each subject is tightly sketched
before she picks up a brush. A self-professed color nerd fascinated
by how colors interact and play within her paintings, her palette
is carefully planned as well. And when it's time to paint, it's
usually done alla prima, a wet-on-wet technique that helps her
to achieve a sense of spontaneity and expressive brush work.
Smile-inspiring whimsy is just one of the draws for this popular
artist, who was director of Art Plus Gallery 2016-2019. Her
ability to capture the unique personality of a dog or cat earns
her dozens of pet portrait commissions each year. She enjoys
painting en plein air, exploring the great outdoors as well as
the realm of her mind.
A lesser known but important aspect of her work: Karen carefully
handcrafts and finishes nearly every solid wood frame that
adorns her paintings, making each one truly and entirely unique.
Karen's artwork can be found in galleries throughout Southeastern
Pennsylvania. She lives in St. Lawrence with her husband Kevin,
children Meilea and Rowan and her wayward rescue hound Ember.
In addition to the exhibits at Art Plus, gallery members' artwork is
also always on display at The Art Room, Chef Alan's, DoubleClick,
Say Cheese!, West Reading Tavern and other places along Penn
Avenue. And they always have a special event or two in the works,
often in keeping with their mission that for 20+ years has earned
them the status of being a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization:
promoting art appreciation and participation throughout Berks
County in general, and among students in particular. Visit the
gallery or their website to get the latest on this summer's art scene.
