Ursuline alumna Katie Holzheimer’s ‘Impressions’ Exhibit shows now until April in Wasmer Gallery


Ursuline alumna Katie Holzheimer is hosting four workshops at the Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery: Feb 12, Feb 27, March 1 and March 6. Holzheimer is currently showing her solo exhibition in Wasmer Gallery titled ‘Impressions’ now through April 4, 2014. The opening reception was February 7.

According to Holzheimer, her paintings are inspired by her natural surroundings. Her goal is to create art that brings peace, contentment, balance and enjoyment to the viewer.

“I love the emotion that comes from being in nature: peacefulness and tranquility. All people are close to the beauty of nature in some way,” Holzheimer said.

Her signature style is painted using acrylics and brushless paint techniques involving materials such as sticks, branches and other natural materials. Holzheimer’s works have been displayed in juried art shows and galleries throughout the country. Holzheimer worked as an internationally renowned interior designer for her family’s company Holzheimer Interiors, Inc., until retirement.
