Karen L. Brown and Virginia Furmanski will display their art in the show “The Pressed Image, Hand Pulled Works on Paper” at Fox Fine Jewelry from September 17 – November 1. An artists’ reception will be held on Saturday, September 19 from 6 – 9pm.
Karen L. Brown was raised on the California coast and her interest in art education began at a young age. Brown earned her Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate degrees while a single mother of two!
Virginia Furmanski believes that art is found within your genes. And she certainly has proof! Her parents were commercial artists, and her three sons are continuing the lineage. But it took Furmanski awhile to find her roots. When Furmanski retired, she rediscovered her artistic roots, and delighted in printmaking. In 2006 Furmanski started the community group “Inkspots” with one print making press. Over the years they have grown to 16 printmakers who now work out of 643 Project Space on Ventura Avenue in Ventura.
