Kathleen Best Gillmann of Burke is set to open an exhibition of her paintings depicting coastal landscapes titled “Vision at Water’s Edge” beginning July 6 at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria.
Gillmann is also an associate artist with the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.
The works in both acrylic and oil feature fresh- and saltwater shorelines from around the country. The artist’s series was inspired in particular by a trip to the north shore Lake Superior, as well as her being raised in southern Maine.
Gillmann’s exhibition will be on display at The Art League in Alexandria’s Torpedo Factory, studio 21, from July 6 until Aug. 7. She’s scheduled to host an opening reception and Meet the Artist event Thursday, July 14 from 6:30-8 p.m.
