Blanden Art Museum exhibiting Kate Javens


Working Horse, Hauling, 1995. Kate Javens.
Oil on theater muslin. 100 x 110 inches.
Palmer Museum of Art. Gift of Joseph D. and Janet M. Shein



The Blanden Art Museum, in Fort Dodge, Iowa, is exhibiting Kate's work. The exhibition, titled "American Beasts," closes on February 16. I have seen some of her animal paintings in her studio space in New York City, and have been deeply impressed by their artful integrity.
