Karen Fry - Artist

249 Forest Glen, SW
 Warren, Ohio 44481-9678







Karen Fry left behind her career in guidance counseling and education when she retired in 2000. Since then, she has turned her attention to the local art world.

The first thing she discovered was that there was a lack of communication among artists. So, in 2002, she developed a newsletter called Trumbull Area Artists, which now serves over 240 members in several counties as a monthly vehicle of communication. The newsletter features an Artist of the Month along with news artists can use. Check it out at

TAA also coordinates gallery space at the Nissen Gallery (Trumbull Memorial Hospital, Warren, OH), as well as an artist demonstration for six days of the local Canfield Fair (Mahoning County).

Karen has been working in lots of media, including watercolor, pastel, graphite, and, most recently, acrylics and printmaking (especially reduction linocuts). She works from models, from her own photos, and in plein air.

She has exhibited in several galleries, particularly Trumbull Art Gallery (Warren, OH), the Nissen Gallery (Trumbull Memorial Hospital, in Warren) and The Butler Institute of American Art (in Youngstown, OH, and its branches in Salem and Warren).

Her affiliations include Trumbull Art Gallery, The Butler Institute of American Art, Cleveland Museum of Art, and Trumbull Area Artists. She volunteers regularly at Trumbull Art Gallery, where she is a participant in the printmaking sessions. She has been taking studio classes with Al Bright, professor emeritus at Youngstown State University, through the 60+ program there.

Karen has also developed, and digitally published, several computerized albums for herself, and on commission, with such themes as major travel experiences and gallery shows (such as for multi-artist shows at Trumbull Art Gallery).
