Artworks Gallery Presents:
Karen Moran Kopf, “Memories Downtown”
Seth Moskowitz, "NEWds - New Interpretations of the Female Form"
Exhibition dates: June 27 - July 31, 2021
Gallery Hop: Friday July 2, 7-9 pm
Meet the Artists Reception, Sunday, July 11, 2-4 pm

"Downtown Mellow"

The paintings in Karen Moran Kopf’s exhibition depict people and locations the artist either observed or events in which she participated. They are mostly on Trade Street and Fourth Street in downtown Winston-Salem. The memories of other people who have been downtown in the past are depicted in gold, silver, and copper leaf figurative shapes. The paintings become a juxtaposition of people in various moments in time.


Karen Moran Kopf received a BA in painting from Wagner College, NYC and studied in Austria and Spain. While she lived in Spain, she exhibited in various European locations. After returning from Europe she continued to paint, but primarily taught school for twenty years. Now that the artist has been painting full-time for several years, she has joined Artworks Gallery and has begun an exhibition schedule with this show.

"Says Who"

Most of Seth Moskowitz’s artwork focuses on nature and nudes, usually shown in combination. For this show, the artist focuses on nudes to create works incorporating many of the same compositional elements, used differently to different effect. This approach is similar to the printmakers’ practice of using recurring visual elements - perhaps a leaf, a fan, a bird, or a wheel - repeated in a series of images to elicit a kind of acknowledgment from the varying combinations. Moskowitz is fascinated by the beauty of organic forms and how the interplay of those shapes, along with hue, tone, and texture affect the emotions evoked by interpretations of the human body and the natural world. Most of the images in this exhibition employ a relatively small set of compositional elements in a variety of ways to create images that are, very closely related to one another but are very different in their ultimate appearance and impact.

Seth Moskowitz is a Winston-Salem based artist who creates and combines photographic images into artworks that rarely resemble the images they incorporate. Moskowitz made a living immersed in the constant chatter of written and verbal communications, working as a journalist for five years, followed by many years of corporate communications and issue management in a controversial industry. He began to create visual art as an escape from the verbal cacophony of the workaday world - a way to enter a peaceful, magical place that is literally, beyond words.
The exhibit is free and open to the public.
