“Moments of Magic” Landscape Oil Paintings by Kat Nottingham

  • April 6 - June 2
  • Lanesboro Arts Gallery

Lanesboro Arts presents “Moments of Magic”: An Exhibition of Landscape Oil Paintings by Kat Nottingham at the Lanesboro Arts Exhibition Gallery. Nottingham’s paintings shine with their reverential representations of ephemeral light, from the soft-spreading glow of a sunset to the luminescent pool of a street lamp. This show will run from April 6th to June 2nd, with an opening reception on Saturday, April 6th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

As an impressionist landscape oil painter Kat Nottingham is inspired by the beauty of the natural world and the fleeting moments of light and color that illuminate it. Her contemporary representational and impressionistic landscape paintings draw inspiration from her experiences as an active Minnesota outdoor enthusiast: sailing on Lake Pepin, biking state pathways, and hiking along the North Shore.

Nottingham is best known for her waterscape paintings, which depict Minnesota’s marshlands, lakes, and rivers. She says “There’s something peaceful and contemplative about water, but it can also be powerful and full of energy.” Nottingham compounds this energy through her adroit depictions of reflected and refracted light, which adds further dimensions of movement and color to her plein air and studio paintings.

She is also inspired by the beauty and energy in nighttime cityscapes. Her nocturnes glow with pure prismatic color, contrasting against deep shadows.

Always free and open to the public, the Lanesboro Arts Exhibition Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm in April, 2024.
