Karl Pastore to display paintings in Milton’s Wotiz Gallery
During the month of August – from the 1st to the 31st – the Milton Public Library will host the work of a talented painter named Karl Pastore in the Wotiz Gallery.
The show is called “Milton and Beyond.” Pastore is an amateur artist who has taken up watercolor painting since retiring from the Department of Conservation and Recreation in 2020. The artist lives in Milton, and he finds a wealth of painting subjects in his own backyard.
This is what Mr. Pastore has to say about his art:
“When you are learning how to paint, subjects are everywhere, such as the Town’s historic buildings and open spaces like the Blue Hills. I really enjoy the medium of watercolor and having the extra time to paint. As an older adult, I’m finding the process of learning new things – like watercolor painting – easier, especially with the enormous amount of amazing artists…”
He also appreciates YouTube’s instructional videos which help him perfect his craft. Karl is a member of PAMM (Provincetown Art Association and Museum), the Artist Network, and the Milton Art Center.
This exhibit will include watercolor landscapes, including Milton scenes, and a smaller selection of graphite drawings and abstracts. Please come and view some beautiful paintings and drawings this month in our first floor gallery!
