In “Block Island, Changing Light,” 17 oils-on-canvas, Kate Knapp captures the effects of the ever-changing light as it falls on familiar island places. The oils will be on exhibit at the Jessie Edwards Gallery on the second floor of the Post Office building from Friday, July 31 to Aug. 12. In a “Meet the Artist” video posted on our website, Instagram, and Facebook, Knapp talks about her work in this exhibit, and there will be a ”Gallery Walk-Through” shared online starting Friday afternoon, July 31, where visitors can enjoy the show at their own pace.

The show will be open to viewing in the gallery during our open hours, and private viewings can be arranged by contacting the gallery.

“I like the tension between light and shadow. Where there is light, there is shadow,” Knapp explained. “Art is a place I go to find peace, and I find peace in the simplicity of Block Island.”

For Knapp, it is being in the moment when all elements come together that leads to epiphany — enlightenment.
