Tamara Kontrimas: Allure

Detail of “Purple Pearls” by Tamara Kontrimas

In her October exhibit in the Cloister Gallery entitled “Allure,” artist Tamara Kontrimas uses watercolors to express light and clarity and, through her paintings, show the textures, shapes, and beauty of the natural world.

“I want the viewer to be able to feel the rich smoothness of satin, the inner glow of pearls, the ridges and curves of antlers and the intricate structure of a feather,” Kontrimas says, “but also the thrill of looking at something so closely that you become a part of it.”

The exhibit runs through October 29. An opening artist’s reception will be held Friday, October 2, from 6–8 p.m.
