Fresh Gallery November Featured Artist Reception – Linda Kirchner

401 North Boonville Springfield, MO 65806


Join us on November 11, 5:30-7:30 pm, for Linda Kirchner’s artist reception!
A lifetime of jigsaw puzzles, travel, and geometry combine to create Linda Kirchner’s unique art. As she works jigsaw puzzles, Linda focuses on subtle color changes, noting a myriad of shades of green, brown, gold, and yellow in one tree, for example. Add in her love of travel and a variety of topics from both urban and rural settings find their way to her work. Twenty-eight years of teaching geometry brings in a playful obsession with parallel lines, polygons, arcs, and circles. Her abstract art emerges as she lets the angles and curves create a new world. So, numerous color changes, a wide range of topics, and boundless shapes produce an effect that will dance from her canvas into your heart!
Born and reared in Springfield, Linda graduated from Glendale High School and Missouri State University. An English and Mathematics double major, Linda enjoys both the abstract and concrete topics of each subject and similarly, delights in both abstract and representational art. However, in her own paintings, she frequently overrides the more representational work with her own whimsical touches. A fish becomes a stained-glass swimmer in a current of gray and blue swirls. A mountain transforms into a quilted landscape. A horse leaps into the air with feathers. She hopes you find joy in her spirited, colorful work.
