KOH Library and Cultural Center will host an artist’s discussion and reception by local artist Mikhail Haramati. The artist will describe her inspiration and technique and include images of a painting at different stages of completion.
Mikhail Haramati is a self-taught artist who has been painting and exhibiting her work for over 15 years. She has exhibited at galleries and other venues in Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, and Sonoma County. A native of Petaluma, she has a love of everyday northern California scenes, creating representational images that capture the distinct feel and mood of the region. Using bold brush strokes, she depicts big rigs, grain silos, parks, and street scenes in a painterly style.
While some of the paintings contain figures, their personalities fade into the background allowing the viewer to take in the entirety of the image. Influences include artists Richard Diebenkorn, Edward Hopper, and Robert Bechtle. Ms. Haramati has a BA from Mills College and an MPP from UC Berkeley.
Ms. Haramati’s exhibit, “Scenes of Northern California” will be up through May at the KOH Library and Cultural Center on the campus of Mosaic Law Congregation.
