Karen Titus Smith: Her Work and Artistic Journey

Karen Titus Smith: Her Work and Artistic Journey
Thursday, November 21, 2019, 7 p.m.
Prallsville Mills, Stockton NJ

Karen Titus Smith will be Artsbridge’s “Distinguished Artist” when their series continues at 7 pm on Nov. 21, at the Prallsville Mills, 33 Risler St., Stockton NJ. An artist and creative force at a New York design firm, Ms. Smith’s artwork graces the walls of exclusive hotels throughout America, including the presidential suites at the Willard and Watergate Hotels in Washington, DC, and the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. Her commissioned murals are largely scenic pieces that create indoor environments. She uses and teaches the old masters process and primavera techniques. Her demonstration at the Mill will share an old master technique of underpainting and glazing.

A career spanning three decades, the artist’s vast experiences have ranged from sign painting to theater drops, still life to abstract.

Born in Narbeth, PA, Karen earned a BFA from Moore College of Art, and continued her studies at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and Tyler School of Art. Since 1978, her home and studio are in Pemberton NJ, where she paints and teaches in both oil and acrylics.
