New "Palate" Exhibit Opens Next Week!

New “Palate” Exhibit Opens Next Week!

SEAD Gallery is honored to announce our last exhibit of the summer : “Palate,” by painter Kristine Kainer. The exhibit kicks off with a public reception next Thursday, July 21, at the SEAD Gallery. All are invited to attend and welcome Kainer, visit with her, and enjoy her art.

Specializing in oils, self-taught artist Kristine Kainer paints what she loves: food, seashells, vintage items, and the occasional seascape. Her works are found in both public and private collections nationally and internationally. Although she has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The College of William and Mary in Art History and Architecture, she didn’t begin to paint until twenty years after graduating college.

“I worked in the corporate world, then was an educator, for many years.  Hideous commutes and rigid schedules were part of life,” Kainer said. “Thirty students in a classroom without a teacher is a recipe—pun intended—for disaster.  I wanted to slow down and do things my way whenever the mood struck.  Painting provides that.”

She and her family currently reside in Georgetown (near Austin) and Schulenburg where they enjoy the urban, suburban, and rural lifestyles of Texas.

Kainer’s paintings add warmth, beauty and dimension to ordinary objects. “Palate” is our last exhibit of the summer, running until September 10. Learn more about Kainer at her website,
