"Intertwined-- the Soul and the Brush"
Friday, October 6, 5:00-7:00 pm
During the month of October several new oil paintings by Linda Bruening will be exhibited in our Exchange Street Gallery. This solo exhibition features paintings done in the past year and a half. Linda uses traditional oil painting techniques and explores contemporary techniques using drips and splotches. Her paintings are generally viewed as being representational but many have an abstract component. Some of her work uses a linear, calligraphic approach while in others are these wonderful shapes. Linda relies on visual impressions and her creativity to present an eclectic view of the natural world.
All of her art work is based on landscapes, water scenes, a simple still life, or her memories of various places. She states that her objective, "as it is for all artists, is to engage the viewer; to make one stop and pause; to contemplate the subject, the brush work, or the use of color. For me, the brush is the physical extension of the idea and the idea should have soul".
Linda's current painting period began about 10 years ago when she joined the Artists League after moving from Maryland. Prior to that she was traveling with her military husband and had a career as a high school art instructor. Her works have won local and regional awards and are found in several private and college collections.
The exhibition is on display through October 26.
