Kim McCarty Paints is a vibrant installation and art sale presented by GRACIE, The Santa Monica Museum of Art’s innovative gift store.  Kim McCarty Paints features an array of intimate watercolors created by the artist exclusively for SMMoA. During the installation and sale, a watercolor studio in the project room will provide visitors with close-up access to McCarty at work. 

Kim McCarty is best known for her fragile and ephemeral images of slender, youthful figures. She uses a “wet into wet” watercolor medium that allows the paint to flow and pool, creating ethereal patterns over the surfaces of the paper. 

Proceeds from Kim McCarty Paints generously support the Santa Monica Museum of Art’s exhibitions and public programs.
