    December 2017: Kathie Odom

    KathieOdom

    A native of Tennessee, Kathie Odom lives by the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. She keeps her car packed with all the painting supplies needed for the road, because, “It’s hard to ignore beauty when it happens!”

    Kathie has received numerous awards in plein air events across the nation. She is a signature member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, a member of the Plein Air Painters of the SouthEast, signature member of the Women Painters of the Southeast, The Arts and Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville, and member of the Tuesday Painters, a weekly plein air gathering of East Tennessee artists. Additionally, she is a member of the American Impressionist Society, and Oil Painters of America.

    Speaking of Kathie's work, many art professionals have commented on her work, including:

    "What a delightful and spirited painting! No dabbling here... a direct, confident and fresh application of color and form. Kathie breathes life into his wonderful gem!” — Ned Mueller, Juror, regarding "Springvale,” Art Muse Contest, April 2017.

    "What Kathie's in love with is light and the colors of light, and boy does she deliver! I love the way she sees the world" —
    Charlie Hunter, Judge, Sedona Art Prize, December 2016.

    "Artist Kathie Odom embraces the gift of painting. Her rural scenes and landscape paintings are marked by a beautiful use of painterly texture. These painterly marks reveal the raw goodness that can be discovered if one explores her surroundings off the beaten path." — Informed Collector, June 2015.
