Judging by the name of her show, Happy Go Lucky, Karin Olah’s new home in Colorado must be treating her pretty well. She left us last year, but luckily it wasn’t for good — it seems that she’s keeping a presence in the Lowcountry, at least artistically. New paintings by Olah will appear at Corrigan Gallery this Friday, as part of First Fridays on Broad. Olah’s paintings are inspired by Amish quilts, which she fell in love with while growing up in Lancaster, Pa. She works with natural fabrics like cotton, linen, and silk to create what she calls “collage paintings.” The process is time-consuming and detailed, and creates textured, unique mixed-media pieces. “There is a lovely freshness about Karin’s work that I find appealing,” says Corrigan Gallery director Lese Corrigan. “On the surface it is charming and peaceful, but when you dive into the work, there are literally and figuratively layers of complexity.” The show will be on display through the month of December.
