Henri Frederic Amiel said, “Any landscape is a condition of the spirit.” Our three featured painters this month each have a unique vision and approach to the landscape and in that vision, a unique spirit. French artist, Eliane Penalver Jallon’s large acrylic paintings journal her travels through the “wild and savage America”. Local artist, Cheryl Williams’ brilliant and saturated paintings focus on the nature of light with an abstract sensibility and Sylvia Verange’s pastel landscapes respond to the vibrant richness of nature with a classical approach to landscape painting. Join us for the Artists’ Reception, held during Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk on September 6th from 5~8 p.m. Enjoy a late summer evening stroll with other art lovers and meet the artists. Wine and light refreshments will be served along with the music of Justin Gordon.
