Glines To Give “Artists Along the Katy Trail” Presentation

Photojournalist Karen Glines will speak at William Woods University April 19, discussing information she collected through personal experience and interviews with more than 100 artists during the “Artists Along the Katy Trail” plein air project.

Her 1 p.m. presentation and workshop will take place in the university’s library auditorium and is free and open to the public.

“Artists Along the Katy Trail” has evolved from a simple gathering of artists to a respected art event. The discussion will include how Glines developed the award-winning “Daily Log,” which can be read on the “Artists Along the Katy Trail” website.

The month-long project “Artists Along the Katy Trail” was founded by plein-air artist Billy O’Donnell. Nearly 195 artists painted along the 227-mile Katy Trail from Sedalia to St. Charles for 16 days, in an attempt to transform the beautiful Missouri landscape into artwork.

Glines’s presentation and workshop is sponsored by WWU’s Division of Visual, Performing and Communication Arts and University Relations.
