Welcome to the “Conch Republic” Key West Paintings by Jane Knaus

From January 3 to 31, 2019 CAMP Rehoboth will host a solo art exhibition by local artist Jane Knaus, with an artist’s reception on January 12, from 3 to 5 p.m.

It may be cold outside, but it will be warm at this exhibition which features Knaus’ work from our tropical paradise —Key West, Florida! She is presenting about 20 paintings from her many visits there over the years. The artwork depicts the local scenery, a multitude of colorful seascapes, roosters, sunrises, and floral images. Take a little time to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Key West through the artist’s eyes.

Jane is a retired creative director from Montgomery, Maryland. She has enjoyed painting for many years. Knaus earned her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts at the University of California, Berkeley. She earned her Publication Design Certificate from George Washington University, and has exhibited in Europe as well as in the United States. A prize-winning graphic designer, Knaus is a member of the Rehoboth Art League and the Delaware Shore Artists Group.

Jane’s paintings are inspired by the beauty of nature in its many manifestations; creating something original about what we all see every day around us is the real challenge, and that’s where the excitement is for me as an artist.

We can all use a tropical get-away! No need for a change in latitude to experience a change in attitude! Stop by CAMP Rehoboth to see this exhibition and experience the Key West “State of Mind.”
