100 dollar show springvill museum of art 2019 katrina berg
so who’s coming to the 100 dolla holla?!
thursday december 5th
6:30 - 8 pm
this is my 5th time doing the 100 dollar show! it gets more exciting every year as new artists participate, some return, it's always an amazing group! this year there will be 30+ incredible local artists in the loveliest of places surrounded by the most stunning art, and run by the coolest of museum cool cats. 
i'll be bringing mini gold framed circles that look so much like my big ones. they each come with a mini easel! 
and now a lil’ FAQ for you lovely friends you:

midway art association's wasatch plein air paradise 2019 (katrina's latest landscape paintings)

midway art association's wasatch plein air paradise 2019 (katrina's latest landscape paintings)

each summer our lil' mountain town of midway, utah hosts a plein air event. it draws over 100 local utah artists (and neighboring states) to paint all over our valley for 2 weeks. 

painting en plein air or in the open air, has its own challenges: the wind, the sun & light changing rapidly, the bugs...oh the bugs! i love shadows...i have to commit quickly, or i get distracted & confused. honestly, all the shadows & colors changing with the light are so fun to paint! sometimes the wind gets super strong and your painting goes right with it! mostly though, the seeds and pieces of nature that tend to fly into the paint at the most inoportune times lol. this year we even had some sleet/hail/snow the first day...so you have to be prepared. you'll find me positioning my car so i can hide from the wind and sun. sunstroke can hit too quickly as i was reminded last month lol.

it's fun to live so close and be able to run home and take breaks, but i do need to make sure i have enough energy to jump back into family life as soon as i return. 

so many of the same artists return year after year and that is also so fun. i make new artist friends each year & discover new favorite paintings. it is a huge event with 2 weeks of painting & 7 ways to participate. 

a big shoutout to the midway art association team. they are simply a dream team with president jerry, his secretary norma, larry, cindy, bill, and so many more delightful supporters of the arts. special thanks to everyone who helped make this year and years past such a sucess! click on any of the photos to see more details and the framing for each piece.

hoping your 4th was fantastic. i'm excited to get back to the normal workings in the studio lol. text or email me if you'd like to come for a studio visit and see these in person. xo, katrina (435.709.2780 || k@katrinaberg.com)
