Art exhibit features student works

An exhibition of paintings by local artist Suzi Mather runs through April in the Modoc Gallery at the Klamath County Museum.

A reception for the exhibit begins at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 7.

A native of Newport Beach, Calif., Mather pursued work in Southern California and on the Oregon Coast before moving to the Chiloquin area in 1997. She now lives in Keno, where she conducts art classes from her home studio.

Early in her art career Mather worked primarily with acrylics, but switched media when a fellow artist dared her to enter a watercolor competition. She ended up winning the competition, and became hooked on watercolor.

“I became known as the horse artist, which has continued to this day as my favorite subject,” Mather said. “I branched out in the use of color when I began painting my cats in different backgrounds, and went on to painting my granddaughters when they came along.”

Mather’s show at the Modoc Gallery includes samples of her work over five decades. Physical limitations have forced her reduce her work with water colors, and she has focused more on oil painting in recent years.

The Modoc Gallery exhibition can be viewed free of charge during regular museum hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
