Local artist Krista Fulbright prepares to brighten up The Center for Art, Culture and History in Exeter with “Illumination” exhibit

EXETER – The Center for Art, Culture and History Exeter, or CACHE, will be hosting a solo exhibition titled “Illumination,” featuring watercolor and acrylic paintings by local artist Krista Fulbright. 

The exhibit will be on view from July 13 through Oct. 13. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, July 13, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Fulbright, who is originally from the Midwest, realized her talent for drawing at a very young age. She enrolled in private art lessons while she was a teenager and throughout high school and college, studied drawing, painting and design, as well as teacher education classes. She earned her MS in Education and taught students from kindergarten to high school from 2006 to 2020. While raising a family and teaching, she continued to explore fiber arts, ceramics, oil and watercolor painting.

She moved to California in 2020 and devoted herself to her full-time career as a professional artist, with a current focus on watercolor. As a contemporary realist, Fulbright uses design principles to create dramatic contrast in her still-life and nature paintings, which builds a connection with viewers. The living quality of watercolor and the play of light and shadows on everyday subjects add movement to her paintings while inspiring her to create more. Drawn to the luminosity and the challenge of watercolor, she finds it exciting to share her vision through this medium.

All artwork will be on sale during the length of the exhibition. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, the website can be visited at www.cach-exeter.org
