Join Cornerstone Center for Arts on Thursday, October 4 for the opening reception of A Nature Walk with God, featuring a collection of landscape paintings by regional artist Barbara Kuntz. The reception will take place in the newly renovated Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in conjunction with October’s First Thursday ArtsWalk.
In the collection, A Nature Walk with God, artist Barbara Kuntz utilizes the act of painting to explore a journey of self-expression. Drawn to nature as a place of rejuvenation, Barbara began each painting using only the memories of places she has been as inspiration. She then allows the painting to evolve into an image of its own making. This experiential process encourages the paint colors, the paint brushes, and a little technique to create work that allows the imperfections in life to exist without an eraser. Barbara has found natural reoccurring subjects; trees, water, rocks, and sky within her body of work creating a sense of solitude and peace.
Barbara Kuntz is a retired art educator who loves nature. She graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science in Art Education. She later earned a Master’s in Education from Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion, Indiana. Barbara taught in Fort Wayne Community Schools on the elementary level for 21 years. Barbara currently resides in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
A Nature Walk with God will be on display and open to the public in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery throughout the month of October.
