Kathy Truelove Barton

Kathy captures a “spirit of place” in the paintings she is creating of Central and Southern Indiana. Kathy enjoys painting and photographing landscapes and structures.  She paints outdoors with the Upland Plein Air Painters and the Bloomington Watercolor Society. She uses the photographs as reference to support her painting work. By using referenced detail to complete the field work, the images come to life.  She is currently painting both plein air and in a studio in her home, which is open by appointment.

“The highlight of 2022 for me was to hang eleven pieces in a solo show at Bloomingfoods Market and Café in Bloomington, Indiana. I was also able to exhibit in the Rotunda at West Baden after two days of painting on the grounds of the West Baden Hotel, an amazing building from the late 1800s with present day art on display, what a treat for the participating Artists.”

Kathy uses travel, museums, observation and art videos, to advance her work. Her love of art, travel and nature reinforce each other. Kathy has participated in many Bloomington Watercolor Society member shows, exhibited at the Venue Bloomington, Brown County Art Guild, T. C. Steele Friends Shows at Brown County Art Gallery, West Baden Hotel, French Lick Hotel, and Flowing Colors Studio, Bradley Education Center at Wylie House in Bloomington as well as the Vault at Gallery Mortgage Company.  You can contact her at 812-679-6353 or email at k.truelovebarton@gmail.com
