“Branching Out” Pastel Exhibit at Base Camp

“Let’s Do the Twist” by Kay McKinley Arneson.

“Branching Out,” an exhibit celebrating the recent works of pastel artist Kay McKinley Arneson, will be hosted by Base Camp Coffee Bar, 10904 Hwy. 42 in Sister Bay, beginning Saturday, May 10. The opening reception will also be held on May 10 from 6 – 8 pm. Live, contemporary string music will be provided by Ben McMahon and Friends. The event is free and open to the public.

Arneson, of Ellison Bay, says the show centers on “the lyrical flow of branches and vines as they move through light and shadow.” This movement is captured in both landscapes and detailed studies with abstract elements.

Arneson says “Branching Out” describes both her process and her work.

“I’m continually motivated to explore new areas of expression within the pastel medium,” she says. “This exploration brings great joy to my creative process.”

This is the second year that Arneson, who is the gallery administrator at Peninsula Art School in Fish Creek, is exhibiting at Base Camp. “Branching Out” is scheduled to run through the month of August.

Base Camp Coffee Bar, located below Ecology Sports, serves specialty coffee drinks, teas, bakery and light luncheon items. The café is open daily from 7:30 am – 3:30 pm.
