About The Living Center at Sunny Vista
Sunny Vista Living Center is an independent 501(c) (3) non-profit skilled care and rehabilitation facility serving Colorado Springs since 1911. We strive to work in partnership with the community to serve adults with skilled care and short-term rehabilitation needs. This year we are celebrating our 14th year hosting the Annual Art Show for the direct benefit of the residents at Sunny Vista!

About The Retreat at Sunny Vista; Opening Fall, 2017
The Retreat at Sunny Vista will be a state of the art, assisted living and memory care 501(c) (3) non-profit facility. We will work hand in hand with the community to serve adults with their memory care and assisted living needs. With the addition of this facility, Sunny Vista will become a complete healthcare campus for our senior population.

Karen Khoury

Karen Khoury is an abstract/minimal painter whose work, on the formal level, deals with the inherent qualities and properties of how paint can present itself in both the two-dimensional surface and three dimensional forms. Karen’s work has been exhibited in New York, Ohio, Indiana, Idaho, and Colorado. Her work is supported by both private and corporate collectors; appearing in collections in New York, Boston, London, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Denver, Colorado Springs, Florida, Vail, and many other cities as well. Karen has her BFA from Boise State University and her MFA in studio practice from Ohio University.

Karen’s work reflects the resources that are available to her, being a busy woman. Karen’s paintings are usually small and intimate because she doesn’t have long periods of time to put them together. Karen started painting on wood scraps and used house and craft paint that she could purchase at smaller hobby shops rather than specialty shops.
