JuneArtist-05-26-16For Kathy Ludwig art is a way of life, an attitude, a feeling. She says there is a constant search for themes, new mediums, light and darks, messages to convey in paintings. “Sometimes what you search for is right in front of you,” Ludwig said.

She feels that “home” is finding inspiration in your surroundings and where artists gather. Having lived in states such as Florida and Arizona, she now resides in Nevada, previously in Laughlin and now Mesquite. While in Florida Ludwig studied with Judi Dazzio at the St. Petersburg Art Center under a scholarship for five years.

She finds beauty in the neon lights of Las Vegas, the mesas of Mesquite and the cool water of the Colorado River in Laughlin.

Her goal is to give back to society through art, by stretching her imagination and using more topical themes that might inspire viewers to look at the world in a new light. At one Virgin Valley Artists Associaton (VVAA) competition, she won the blue ribbon for her work “Stardust.” Her unique style makes her a perennial winner in VVAA competitions.

Come and enjoy Ludwig’s artwork at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery during the month of June where she is featured as the Artist of the Month.
