K.C. Stewart

K.C. Stewart hangs a piece of art in the Thrasher Opera House Gallery. Her work will be on display through June 30. 

Green Lake’s Thrasher Opera House Gallery is featuring the works of local artist K.C. Stewart through June 30.

Stewart is a multi-media artist whose comfort zone throughout life has been art and nature.

Although art has never been her “day job,” it’s always been a part of life. Stewart’s art has taken several forms from fiber art to bookbinding, painting and jewelry. It has existed in the shadows as a hobby and occasionally as a side hustle.

Stewart now can focus a little more on the love of painting and experimenting with blending styles and media. Her current work intends to combine art and nature, abstract and landscape.

Stewart has incorporated nature in moss, mud, grass and pine needles into some pieces and loves to experiment with adding the textures she finds in nature and using them as structural elements on the canvas.

The color palette is reminiscent of the earth, sky, and water. But most important, she has relearned the element of play.

“I am a testament to the concept that it’s never too late to follow a dream,” Stewart said. “This has been one of mine.”

Thrasher Opera House’s mission is to promote the arts and the power of live performance, provide a community gathering place and preserve the historic opera house.
