Val Wright: The Landscape Transfigured
Artist Val Wright paints on-site in the open air. She views the landscape with an inward eye, reinterpreting what she sees and feels in watercolor on paper. Her exaggerated sense of scale, vivid color and brush patterns transform our sense of place by connecting memory with a present moment.
Speaking of her work Wright says, “To be a storyteller you have to know where the story begins and ends. I open the door to the undisturbed beauty in nature to find reflections of the familiar and pull shape from confusion.” The exhibition will be on view in the Frederick O. Watson Gallery.
