Sept. 14: Artist Reception for Kathy Wildermuth

Where: Memorial Building

When: Friday, September 14, 4:00 PM


The exhibition Bird Watching: The Art of Kathy Wildermuth will be on display in Memorial Building starting Friday, Sept. 14 through Dec. 7. A reception sponsored by the Office of the President will take place Friday, Sept. 14 at 4 p.m. on the third floor of Memorial Building.

Kathy Wildermuth started painting seriously after she retired from teaching art in 2001. Her search for subject matter led her to travel to Mexico, Spain, Guatemala and Costa Rica, where she was inspired by the warm climates, bright colors and striking customs. The religious iconography of Mexico, specifically the Virgin of Guadalupe, has especially informed her work. After living and working in Seattle, Wildermuth and her husband moved to Walla Walla in 2003.
