Fresh Gallery

Fresh Gallery 400 W. Walnut, Features the ever creative and colorful Artist Linda Kirchner!

A lifetime of jigsaw puzzles, travel and geometry combine to create Linda Kirchner’s unique art. As she works jigsaw puzzles, Linda focuses on subtle color changes, noting the various shades of green, brown, gold and yellow in one tree, for example. Add in her love of travel and a variety of topics from both urban and rural settings find their way to her work. Her twenty-eight years of teaching geometry brings in a playful obsession with parallel lines, polygons, arcs and circles. Abstract art emerges as she lets the angles and curves create a new world. So, numerous color changes, a wide range of topics and boundless shapes produce a stained-glass effect that will dance from her canvas into your heart!

Born and reared in Springfield, Missouri, Linda Kirchner is a graduate of Glendale High School and Missouri State University. She spent 28 years teaching high school Mathematics in Missouri and Texas. A muralist for many years, she now expresses herself on canvas. She is an active member of Fresh Gallery at 400 West Walnut and her work has been displayed at Springfield Brewing Company, Tea Bar and Bites, The Creamery, Maschinos, Elliot Robinson Accounting, Artsfest on Historic Walnut Street, Finley River Gallery, Springfield’s Library Center and in The Big Show at the Springfield-Branson Airport. Linda is married to Keith Kirchner and they have four sons, four daughters-in-law and nine grandchildren.
