“These Waters” Art Exhibition with artist Takeyce Walter

Saturday, July 1, 6 – 7:30, meet the artist

Takeyce Walter is an award winning contemporary American painter (born Jamaica), art instructor, and media producer living and working in upstate New York. Driven to create from an early age, Walter has been producing art for as long as she can remember. Most recently, her focus has been on the natural landscape of her surroundings in the Northeast. Working with oil paint, pastels and gouache, Walter creates paintings that present the landscape in all its glory—flowing rivers, majestic skies, and picturesque lakes. There is a great sense of familiarity, tranquility, and reverence in each piece.

Read Linda Friedman Ramirez’s wonderful piece in the Adirondack Almanack on Takeyce Walter HERE.
