Color and Curve, an exhibition of pastels and oil paintings by Vermont artist Kate Mueller, will be on display at the Castleton State College Christine Price Gallery Jan. 18 - Feb. 18. The show will have over 30 pieces of artwork. An opening reception will be held on Jan. 26, 4 to 6 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Gallery.
Mueller has been working in oil and pastel since the early 1980s. For over ten years, beginning in the mid-nineties, she worked exclusively in pastel with the nude as her sole subject. Recently, she has been playing with shapes from the landscape and doing portraits. Art critic Anne Galloway wrote in a review that Mueller's "bold pastel drawings blurr the line between abstraction and representation" and that she has a "knack for giving her work an edge" with her unusual use of color and subtle shapes.
