February’s First Friday event at Beloit Fine Arts Incubator

Online Staff Report

BELOIT, Wis. — The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator has announced Thomas Traush’s “Impressions in Light and Color” as its February show.

The show will run through Feb. 22 with an Open Gallery event from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 1, where the public can meet the artist and view his paintings.

Trausch is a career artist with 36 years of experience and more than 1,400 original paintings in private, corporate and public collections. His work is driven by the use of both light and color — light can impart a spiritual quality while design, shape and the underlying abstract quality behind the painting determines its success.

He works in both oil and watercolor, is a member of the Oil Painters of America, is a Master Signature Member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and has exhibited nationally for the past three decades. He especially enjoys plein air painting and won Beloit’s Edge of the Rock Plein Air grand prize in 2011. His studio is in Woodstock, Ill. You can view works at www.trauschfinearts.com.

The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator is at 520 E. Grand Ave., Beloit, Wis., and is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
