Visiting Info

Artist Info

Kathryn Metz was a painter and printmaker that came of age as a painter in New York City in the 1960's studying abstract expressionism, which informed all her work subsequently, from her intimate plein air paintings to her monumental landscapes that were luminous. She evolved her work with that aesthetic through representational and abstract landscapes and in all the mediums she chose, primarily oil painting, watercolor, printmaking, and woodcuts. This exhibition will feature Metz’s large-scale landscape paintings spanning over four decades from the late 1970s to early 2000.

Kathryn Metz’s works are held in numerous collections, including the New York Public Library; the Library of Congress; the Fresno Art Museum; Monterey Museum of Art; Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County; the University of California, Los Angeles; and Special Collections, McHenry Library, University of California, Santa Cruz.
