Pamela Tarbell: What Is On Your Balcony
E. N. Wennberg Gallery – Pamela R. Tarbell paints complex compositions with layers of colors in her oil paintings, creating a kaleidoscope affect to dazzle the eyes. “When visiting Spain last year I became fascinated with the beautiful balconies on the old buildings from Barcelona, City of Olot, and medieval villages. The colors, architectural design, wood carvings, and tile work on numerous structures were visually stimulating. I took a multitude of photographs, and when home, rearranged the images into unique balconies with lots of colorful flowers and design patterns.”
Rosemary Conroy : Love At First Sight
Clifford B. West Gallery -“I’ve never put together what each of my encounters with these wild creatures have given me — some of it is just too hard to articulate. So instead, I painted this show. I did my best to capture their beauty and spirit as a way to express my love, respect, and wonder for them and to honor and thank them for being part of my experience, as well.
Each painting here has a paragraph recounting a bit of the story of how we met — which I hope you’ll find interesting. Each painting is literally embedded with my words of gratitude and prayers for each species — marks often obscured but definitely there. And each painting has a love song for a title— because that’s what each one is, really. I hope the show leaves you humming a happy tune and being grateful for all the wonderful encounters you’ve had with wild ones in your life.”
