South Road Poughkeepsie Branch to Feature Artist Ilga Ziemins-Kurens
Posted April 12, 2019
Ulster Savings Bank would like to invite the public to their 2680 South Road, Poughkeepsie branch to enjoy their latest art exhibit by artist Ilga Ziemins-Kurens. Ilga’s exhibit includes acrylic and mixed media paintings that are semi-abstract and semi-realistic. It will be on display at the branch from April 1–May 30, 2019.
Ms. Ziemins-Kurens has a BS in Art Education and has taught art in the Millbrook Central School District for 33 years. Upon retiring in 2008, Ilga turned to more deeply exploring her own talents and experimenting with various art forms. In recent years, she has been pursuing her passion for painting. “I like to observe and work with the play of light, different angles, and ever changing color relationships,” said Ms. Ziemins-Kurens. “The work seems to emerge, magic happens, and a finished painting appears,” she added.
Ilga is a member of the Artist Collective of Hyde Park and serves on their board. She is also a member of Arts Mid-Hudson where she has her jewelry and small paintings on display
