Kay Athos

Kay Athos studied art at San Jose State University, where she received her B.A. She took post-graduate courses at San Jose State; The College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland; Cal State Hayward; and in Guadalajara, Mexico. In art workshops she studied with well-known artists in all media: Watercolor, Jane Burnham; Pastels, Thomas Leighton; Acrylics, Ed Betts; Oils, Catherine Hagen; and Collage, Virginia Cobb.

 

For many years she enjoyed traveling to locations and painting in oils in the open air.  As a realist painter, she was always looking outward at something to paint.  Then she discovered the challenge of looking inward and using only her imagination to create a painting.  She describes her method this way: “When I paint, I rely on imagination and inspiration.  I try to tap into my subconscious and to paint spontaneously rather than intellectually.  As someone once said, ‘A painting is created by the artist and God, and the less the artist has to do with it, the better.’”

 

Kay has exhibited thru-out California and her awards include Best of Show, First Place, Purchase Award and many Merit Awards. Her work is in several corporate collections, including: Adobe Systems, IBM, Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, Syntex and Xerox Corporation.  Some of her recent solo shows include Art Concepts Gallery in Walnut Creek, Jalbert Gallery in Saratoga and Hall Wines in St. Helena.  Kay’s work can currently be seen at Marin Society of Artists in Ross and Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek.
