Bio:

Bio for Artist: Ada Koch Raised in Delaware, Ada Koch won scholarships to the Delaware Art Museum before studying in Washington DC and Chicago. Studies with David de Rousseau of the KC Art Institute preceded her exhibitions and awards in US and Italian galleries. She has been invited regularly to the Biennale show in Florence, Italy and was invited to the premiere of the Effetto in Merido, Mexico as part of the United Nations Dialogue Among Civilizations. She teaches at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and as a guest teacher throughout the US, including fun spots such as the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, AZ. As a board member of the KC Artists Coalition, she was founder of Open Studios, and is active in promoting the local art scene in the KC community. She has painted on Channel 41’s Art Attack show, been reviewed favorably in local papers and magazines, and published her first book of her work “La Piazza: Praising Architecture and A Balanced Life.” Her art is in corporate collections such as the Stowers Institute, JD Reece Company, Rockhurst High School in KC and the Rock School of Dance Education in Philadelphia, PA. Her work can be found in private collections around the world including New Mexico, Paris, Germany, and Switzerland. Her religious paintings can be seen at St. Agnes Church and school in Roeland Park, KS, Rockhurst High School in KC, MO, and Chapel on the Hill, Albia, Iowa. As for her work, Ada says “While in art museums, I have always preferred the artist’s sketch rather than the ‘finished work’. A sketch provides the freedom and movement that shows the artist’s true style.” Her work provides numerous layers and media but maintains the freedom, fluidity, and fresh playfulness of the sketch.
