Amalia Yosefa and Karin Neuvirth Share Edgewood Cottage as Artists in Residence From June 13 Through June 19

Amalia Yosefa and Karin Neuvirth are sharing Edgewood Cottage this week in Blowing Rock as part of the Artists in Residence program.

Amalia Yosefa’s passion is capturing the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains in both watercolor and oil. She especially enjoys creating visual pieces that evoke a sense of nostalgia and a return to a childlike sense of wonder connected to a simpler time.

Karin Neuvirth recalls that color could drastically affect her emotional state, and is by far the most dominant element in her compositions. Growing up on a farm in Minnesota’s cold, grey climate, Karin found solace in creating an oasis of bright colors inside of her home. Living in the North Carolina mountains, she is astounded by the natural beauty around every turn. She works primarily with a
palette knife to create colorful, textural, impressionist paintings.
