August 2018 Gallery @VT featuring "People See; People Do" by Artist Kay Masini

Exhibition Dates:  August 1-29, 2018

Artist Bio: Kay Masini uses Representational Abstraction, which is a contemporary style that combines realism and abstraction in her recent series of acrylic paintings. Also included in the exhibition are several of her favorite works in other media and styles that have a similar subject.

Masini is a lifelong painter, active on art boards and in national and international organizations. Among her solo exhibitions was one in Antwerp, Belgium where she holds membership in the Internationale Vriendenkring. Her work is included in many private collections; she has also shown in solo and group shows in Minnesota, as well as Michigan, winning numerous awards. A signature member of the International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA), she is also a current member of the Three Cities Art Club and the Plymouth Community Arts Center. Two of Masini's paintings were also selected for the first acrylic painting book by Nancy Reyner for North Light books, labeled “THE BEST OF ACRYLIC PAINTING”
Masini holds a bachelor’s degree in art and philosophy from the Dominican
University in River Forest, Illinois and has studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, with a brief study at Oxford in England and with prominent artists in workshops in the United States. She is a believer in continued learning - not only of art techniques but also of comparative thought.

Masini was a partner in a marketing communication firm in St. Joseph, Michigan dealing with major U.S. corporate clients, plus financial, health and educational clients. She has also designed book covers and authored a Christmas book of art and poetry. Masini currently lives in Plymouth, MI with her husband and spends her summers painting in her studio on Beaver Island, MI where she was born.
