Karin’s paintings have been repeatedly juried
into numerous shows in the Northeast, including those of The Copley
Society, The New England Watercolor Society, Academic Artists, and
the Bennington Center for the Arts. In the spring of 2000 twenty
of her watercolors were exhibited at the State House in Boston. Five
of her watercolors were included in an invitational show, Watercolors
II, at the Copley Society on Newbury Street in Boston in 2003. Also
in that year Karin had a show with her cousin, James Carlson Gartin,
at the Becket Arts Center in Becket, Massachusetts. Paintings by
their grandfather and mothers, who were all artists, were included
in the show.
She has had paintings selected for the 2006 and 2007
Art with Heart calendars produced by ServiceNet to raise awareness
and funds for people in need throughout Massachusetts’ Pioneer
Valley. She is currently creating illustrations for a children’s
book written by her daughter-in-law, Jacqueline. In the summer, Karin
teaches watercolor at the Becket arts Center.
