Kathy Corey is an artist and the founder of B Extraordinaire Gallery. Originally from Key West, a descendant of seafarers, adventure seekers, and rapscallions lured by the ocean, her art is inspired by her heritage and love of the sea. Her artwork reflects nature's glory, the vastness and power of the ocean and all things therein. The ever-changing sky with its grandeur of colors, clouds and space takes her breath away. Island life, sundrenched children, and tropical gardens fill her canvases.
B Extraordinaire Gallery's mission is to be an on-going source of inspiration to everyone who visits our pages. In addition to viewing works from our talented artists (who continue to add new works), we regularly update news about upcoming shows and events in our Journal section. There, you'll also find insights from our artists who take us behind the scenes of their work, sharing their tips and stories about their creations.

B Extraordinaire artist, Maria Ojascastro was featured in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Pat Eby writes, "The paintings and prints Maria Ojascastro makes reveal themselves by degrees. In the depth of layers, the studied application of colors that build energy and imagery, with subtle differences and fine distinctions of line, shape and form, her pieces draw viewers in. Her works speak universal truths through her very personal lens.
Garden sanctuaries, singing birds, buds and blooms abound; they promise a brighter tomorrow. A Still Life, her study of a green apple and a burgundy wine bottle, isn’t an artistic trope; it’s a meditation on stillness, rediscovered. "

B Extraordinaire is thrilled to announce that Jane Reed will have a three month solo art exhibition taking place from May 6 through July 31, 2021.
The Exhibits will be at both MISSOURI ATHLETIC CLUB locations:
Downtown MAC, 405 Washington Ave, St. Louis, MO. 63102
MAC West, 1777 Des Peres, Town and Country, MO. 63131
Jane Reed will be exhibiting a retrospective of her paintings which include landscapes, expressionist portraits, conceptual works, still lifes, and abstracts. Her early years of being an artist were changed completely by her first visit to the Colorado Rocky Mountains. After falling in love with landscapes, In her travels, she has always used her photos as only jumping-off places, for expressing the essence of the vistas. The artist prefers expressionism in her renderings of portraits, placing the emphasis on emotion.
Although Jane paints in varied schools, and styles of art, she is primarily a Colorist. It is her great love for COLOR, and respect for vivid brush strokes, which informs her work. All are empowered by listening to the "Muse", following the "right brain", with the "left brain" there, keeping composition in check.
Please contact her at email@example.com, for any questions or information.
All the paintings on firstname.lastname@example.org will be a part of this exhibit at MAC.
