Kathrine Allen-Coleman and R. Scott Coleman are sort of an artistic "Odd Couple." Kathrine, a mixed media artist from Victoria, B.C., Canada, met Scott, a watercolor painter from Jackson, Georgia, at a watercolor workshop in the South of France. In fact, Scott was the instructor, just one of those chance meetings that changes everything.
Within a couple of years Kathrine had all of her worldly possesions loaded up in a Uhaul truck with really bad brakes. Kathrine, Scott, and one really hacked off cat were making their first cross country journey together.
There was a lovely little wedding.
Then things started getting busy. They started travelling together to local art festivals, showing their works. Then the shows started to get bigger, and better, and further away. Now you can find them at national outdoor events from Miami, FL to Ft. Worth, TX, even Ann Arbor, MI.
Sometime early on they found a sweet little house, scheduled for demolition. The 150 year old house was available, it simply had to be moved. Amid the art shows the house was deconstructed, down to the first floor, all 5 chimneys were taken down, the roof was taken down, and it was moved across town. Easy peasy right? Have I mentioned every single window was broken and everything had to be redone? Plumbing, electrical, drywall...everything.
In the past 8 years the house has been put back together, gardens have been planted, a studio built in the backyard. The newest project, covering the cinder block foundation in a broken china mosaic, is underway.
And the art shows still go on. Explore the website, you'll find links to their blogs, shows, and available work. Enjoy! And tell a friend!
