Finding Truth
An Exhibition by

Audrey Kay Dowling

on view November 4 – December 10, 2022

Opening reception November 4th, 2022 from 5-8p.m.

“Finding Truth” is the result of Audrey’s continued life long love affair with her natural environment. Influenced mostly from her life in rural Chautauqua County, Audrey is always taking in the subtleties of wherever she is wandering to use in her work. At times working right out in the field and other times doing quick mental sketches to add when she is back in her studio. An avid mixed media artist, Audrey loves to combine techniques that give her the message she wants to convey through her work. Her truth has always been found in her interpretation of the natural world around her. From an outdoor childhood and on wishing trees, water environments, birds, and woods of all descriptions continue to be Audrey’s art muses. Returning to western NY to be back in an easily accessible, “right out the door” open natural land has defined her art path. Her work aims to interpret rather than slavishly copy. By staying looser, she can process more freely and share more of her own way of seeing and thinking. 

This show is made possible by the New York State Council of the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the  New York State Legislature
