    A Walk in the Wild

    March 4 through June 30, 2017
    Cowgirl Red presents “A Walk on the Wild,” paintings by Kathryn Nun and mixed media by Melinda Bon’ewell.

    Kathryn Nun has been embracing the arts of Santa Fe since relocating from South Florida in 2001. Her strong use of color results in bold and vivacious pieces, always full of passion and highly influenced by New Mexico's wildlife and brilliant sunsets. Predominantly working in acrylic, Kathryn often applies a variety of textures to her paintings, including watercolor inks, liquid oils, epoxy resin, and encaustic techniques.

    Mixed media will be presented by Melinda Bon’ewell. She combines her passion of the Wild West and found objects with mixed media. Bringing historical characters to life with assemblage, acrylic paint and up-cycled objects. Nostalgia and mystic of historical legends are combined with portraiture in many of her paintings.
