Join us in the Reception Gallery for our first-ever Wine & Canvas event! Enjoy your favorite beverage while painting a masterpiece with instructor Kathy Bechtel. Your first drink is included, and a full cash bar will be available.

Kathleen Bechtel studied at Kendall School of Art & Design and has taken numerous workshops to continue her art education from instructors that she admires. She has been an artist her whole life, taking 20 years to understand and perfect her drawing skills, and then moving on to different media. Since then, time she has spent time learning the complexities of pastel and oil paint.  In her experience as an artist her subject matters are portraits, figurative work, still life’s and landscapes.

Kathleen works for the Franciscan Life Process Center in Lowell, MI as an Art Director, bringing in workshop teachers for continuing education in art for the community as well as curating artwork for five different gallery spaces.

“Painting and drawing is like making beautiful magic to me. To create something where there is nothing at all is necessary. Where there is art there is hope. Where there is art there are dreams . . . Painting is a way of communicating. To think of people seeing my paintings that I will never see or know is something that is profoundly moving to me.”
