The College of Agricultural Sciences Presents: Kathryn Cotnoir Paintings
Portland artist Kathryn Cotnoir creates drawings and paintings en plein air style, working outdoors with natural sun light of the Willamette Valley, the Oregon coast, and the Haida Gwaii, Canada, archipelago off the Pacific coast of British Columbia.
Cotnoir writes, “I respond to dramatic spaces created by interactions of earth, plants, topography, and water. My work is an extended and interpretive response to my surroundings. I use various media—especially drawing, watercolor, or acrylic—sometimes in combination—to address the landscape of the Pacific Northwest.”
