It’s time to say goodbye to the gray skies of winter and enjoy the emergence of a new spring season. Springtime means the flowers are bursting with color and sweet fragrances. The bees, butterflies and birds are busy with their tasks. Dick Kane, of Rochester, NY and Bill Mowson of Ithaca, NY, have plenty of experience trying to capture it all for us to enjoy.

Mowson paints watercolors of landscapes in the Finger Lakes region with an emphasis on the lakes and hills. His goal is to make the viewer see and feel the subject matter through his artistry.

Kane gets his inspiration from the Finger Lakes region, Vermont, the southwest and his travels to Europe. Kane has taught art classes at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, the Arts Center of Yates County and the Pat Roher Gallery in Canandaigua, NY.

About the Artists

About Dick Kane

A lifelong love of nature has been my impetus for painting. My painting technique is representational with an impressionist influence.  My goal is to express my personal feelings about my subjects which include the wonderful local Finger Lakes, the East and West Coasts, and inspiring motifs in Europe.

I am a graduate of the R.I.T. School of Art, and was a painting instructor for many years at the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester. I have been a long time member and past-president of the Rochester Art Club. As well as the PennYan Art Guild and the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters.

My works are in many private and public collections.

I am blessed with the tremendous support of my family.
