We have a new art exhibition beginning April 26 with local artist Christine Hella Cott Thompson. This exhibition features some of her recent work taken from inspirations all around her, right in The Neighborhood.
While her landscapes are mostly of physical places that can be visited, each comes from an interior connection, an interior landscape. Self-taught in all aspects of her artistic career, she has also worked as a commercial illustrator, writer, and editor. She is a member of the SidneyArtGallery and her most recent show was at Director's Gallery in Winslow on BainbridgeIsland in November 2011.
How does one take an ephemeral emotion and deliver it upon a canvas with a daub of paint? What shade, what tone, what line, coming or going, will be the key? What passion will rise to the moment? History tells us that the more we understand the less we fear; art connects diverse people, diverse cultures, diverse times. The practice of art has circumnavigated the globe since man’s earliest beginnings..I just love art. Imagine a life without art - Christine Hella Cott Thompson
