New Work by Cally Krallman

New Work by Cally Krallman

I have been painting in the Midwest, primarily Kansas, for over 25 years.  I have traveled to many places throughout the world but I am still drawn to the simplistic beauty of Kansas.  Many people think of Kansas as just a flat agricultural state, but in fact it is full of wonderful hills, tree lined rivers and creeks, and other unique land formations.  The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking and calming at the same time.  Our four seasons create a myriad of colors worthy of any artists' palette.

Any artist can see the grandeur of the great mountains and oceans, but to find beauty in the simplest of rocky plains, tall native grasses, back roads, meandering creeks, and fields of grain takes someone who loves the region...loves the plains.

Regional art plays an important role in American history.  I feel it not only records our place in time, but it is a window for others to see the ordinary in a not so ordinary way.  I try to share that in each painting I create.

I was raised in western Kansas but eventually came to eastern Kansas to attend Washburn University, earning a BFA in 1981.

Some of the other places I love to paint are Texas, Colorado, Missouri, New Mexico, Arizona.  I enjoy painting "en plein aire", so many of my works are painted on location.

Selected Works by Juanita Herrell and Carolyn Coffey Wallace

Selected Works by Juanita Herrell and Carolyn Coffey Wallace

Hawthorn Galleries presents selected works by local artists Juanita Herrell and Carolyn Coffey Wallace.

Juanita Herrell started expressing herself through art as a young child. The importance of artistic expression has always been a central element in her life. Today Herrell continues to create pieces that explore her love of both nature and scripture.

Carolyn Coffey Wallace’s history is filled with images of her mother knitting. Her mother was able to take a single strand of yarn and weave it into an article of incredible beauty. Like her mother’s knitting, Wallace visualizes her life as a meandering thread that overlaps the life threads of others in a design of beautiful complexity.

This exhibition is a visual representation of the intertwining life threads of these two friends and artists. Join us for the Opening Artist Reception Friday, December 4, 2015 from 6 pm to 10 pm.

Local Springfield artist, Tim Breaux, will be sharing some of his recent works here at Hawthorn Galleries during the months of June and July.

Stop by and join the artist for the opening reception during Artwalk on June 5th, from 6 pm to 10 pm. A wide variety of works will be featured, including still life, plein air, nocturne and studio pieces.

Artist Statement: I call myself a landscape painter but I really just paint whatever is appealing to me whether it is in the studio painting little vases and flowers or under a street light at night in some remote small town in America. It all fascinates me. This show is special to me because the owners and curators at Hawthorn Galleries were the first to allow me to show my work. This will be my seventh annual show at the gallery and I am so fortunate that they gave me that first show. I am honored that they continue to believe in me.

Another time, new friends, stir in our hearts within.
Though the seasons will be new, we welcome them for the view,
And many days will pass as Mother Nature brings each season anew."
