Artist demo and membership meeting with Karen Tyler


The Vienna Arts Society welcomes the public to free-of-charge virtual artist demonstrations the second Thursday of each month.

Our featured artist in October was Karen Tyler, who paints full time in her studio at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia. As Karen explains, “My paintings are abstracted interiors rendered in strong colors and layered textures. I like to work large and let my brushwork express my energy and my “quick take” on what I see.”

The subjects she paints are all around her, from my home in Old Town Alexandria to the interiors of friends and family. All it takes to inspire her is a nook or cranny of a room, her paint box or the view from a window.”

Accuracy is not a concern for Karen, but fresh application and spontaneous gesture are. She paints in acrylics so it is possible to layer and juxtapose colors quickly one over another.
