As days of warmer weather bring hints of Springtime that inspire us in the winter's waning days, Kathleen Willingham unveils the mesmerizing beauty of the Season of New Life in full array with her "Speak to Me" exhibit, featured at the Brush Strokes Gallery through April. Each painting is infused with both Kathleen's talent and heart, as she depicts flowers that surround her in her home and garden. Her love of each bloom is conveyed through her emotive artwork, with bold colors and a sense of flow and motion that captures the power of the life-force. Kathleen has been fascinated by the "language of love" of flowers in a spectrum of cultures where each blossom has taken on symbolic significance and has chosen titles for many of her works that connote this wordless communication. Taken together, her delightful collection of paintings emanates vibrancy and joy that will uplift all who view them. Brush Strokes Gallery, located at 824 Caroline Street in downtown Fredericksburg, is open daily from 11 AM to 5 PM. “Speak to Me” will be displayed from April 1to April 29, and visitors will have an opportunity to meet and speak with Kathleen at its opening reception on Friday, April 6, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
