Juror of Awards: Kathryn Stats OPA


Kathryn Stats OPA

Her work is very much her own, not really echoing the styles of any of the painters with whom she has studied.

She has traveled to and painted the coastal areas of California and Oregon as well as locations in Alaska, Russia, Spain, Italy, France and Portugal. She states: "I try not to get too comfortable working in a particular size or subject matter because I feel that comfort leads to stagnation. For this reason, I’m always looking for fresh territory"

The Arizona Republic writes, "Kathryn Stats is a Utah artist whose best landscapes are a complete pleasure. The paint in them is given over to the subject and you know that Stats doesn’t feel the need for any gimmicks to get her point across. Direct, honest, and sensuous, these are the work of a genuine."

Some awards include:
-A Timeless Legacy, an invitational show honoring past women painters of Glacier National Park, and is one of the original Timeless Legacy purchase award winners of the Hockaday Museum in Kalispell Montana.
-Plein Air Convention as a Master Artist.
-Maynard Dixon Country, Mt. Carmel, Utah, 2 time "People’s Choice" winner.
