My Art is about the process of creating artwork.  "A means to the end" best describes my approach to art.  I begin with very little planning.  I let the work evolve through intuition, emotions and movement.  I aim to show energy and expression with bold lines, gesture and high contrast in my work. In the end I create my work for personal gratification.  If the viewer likes what they see then great!
Kathy Shannon Raby received her BA in Art from Otterbein University in 1978 and interned at the Columbus Museum of Art.  Her work has been exhibited at Ashland University, Ashland Art Center and throughout Ashland where she resides.
In addition to being an Artist she was the owner of an art supply store and custom frame shop for 16 years in Ashland area.  She was the professional framer at the shop and taught children and adult art classes.  Presently she is a Kindergarten through 8th grade art teacher at Foundation Academy of Mansfield Ohio. She has been teaching for 7 years.
This exhibit is a cross=section of her art work from 1974 to present. It shows many of her expressive oil and acrylic paintings, as well as graphite, conte, and charcoal drawings on paper.  In this exhibit you will see the development of her work over the years as an artist.
