Gallery Opening

Lin Kilgore

I was born in Rochester and attended Nazareth College receiving a B.S. in 1974 and a M.S. in Art Education 1979. 

I spent thirty years teaching in both the Victor and Fairport Districts, a career that I truly loved.
My artwork is a whimsical and sometimes realistic view of nature and the beauty seen in its flora and fauna. 

Favorite subjects include hares, bunnies, gardens, flowers and birds. 

A recent trip to the Delft Pottery in the Netherlands has influenced my recent work in the patterns and the pallet colors I

am currently using giving it an Olde World feel.  I love to use a variety of media in my work including colored pencil,

alcohol inks, acrylic pens & wood panels.  Using new techniques and media challenges my skills and helps

me to further develop my knowledge of their limits.

The past couple of years my work has included a series of thirteen bird and flower studies that were used to raise monies for donation to the Pluta Cancer Center.  In addition to this most of my time was used to design and paint a large

mural for Schutt’s Apple Mill  during the Summer of 2021.

I love sharing my work with you and am honored to be included in the Show celebrating Spring, hope and rebirth.

“I must have flowers, always and always” –Monet

For me as an artist there can never be too many flowers or too much color! Both are immensely inspirational to me in the creative process. I love abundant, saturated color, especially when combined with blossoms from my garden or the wildflowers found in meadows,

woods or on the side of the road. And then there are the birds and butterflies, no blossom would be complete without one

of these companions. Nature is both beautiful and fascinating!

My creative journey began many years ago and with the gift of an oil painting set it seemed as though my path was laid out but there

were many twists and turns along the way. I absorbed all the art I could manage through high school and beyond but there came a point when I knew I needed to dedicate myself more fully. I returned to Nazareth College, completed my art education degree and embarked

on a teaching career after many years in retail sales. Students and their enthusiasm raised inspiration to a whole new level.

Once I retired, I knew it was time to return to painting, and here I am!

I have always loved watercolors and continue to work with them but more recently I have begun to dabble and explore a bit more in acrylics. My current work is a culmination of these explorations. Intuitive painting is part of the process along with stamping, collaging, stenciling and basic child like fun with paint! It is an ever-evolving exploration and learning process, one that I am happy to have found!
