Description:

Prolific and Eclectic An impressive collection of impressionist landscape and floral motifs by German-born artist Karin S. Billings will be on display from Feb 7 through Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at The Women's Resource Center, 340 S. Tuttle Ave, Sarasota. 941-366-1700. A lover of animals and nature, Billlings uses color, motif and technique to capture the variety and grandeur of flora from around the world and animals ranging from fish to horses. An artist reception and opening will be held Thursday, Feb 7 from 5-7pm. The public is invited and refreshments will be served. Billings' art is an extension of her life experiences where, as a child, she was drawn to animals, specifically horses. A highlight of her career with hoses was in 1972 at the Olympic Games in Munich where she won a silver medal in Dressage. She is one of a few artists practicing Gyotaku, an oriental art form using an actual fish to create an ink image. The prints are made by applying ink directly to the body of the specimen then pressing oriental rice paper to capture the image.
