Art Opening Reception: Ann Quackenbos
September 24, 2016 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Ann Quackenbos will present her exquisitely colorful abstract landscape paintings in an exhibit titled “Water Places,” at the Minor Memorial Library, 23 South Street, beginning with an opening reception for the public on Saturday, September 24 from 2pm to 4pm.
Inspired by the beautiful landscape of the Litchfield Hills, Quackenbos works by combining memory and observation. In order to organize a piece, she begins by drawing, planning to paint over the shapes and colors of the drawing. And then, to convey her experience of the place, she works freely with oil – adding, scraping and working with the images that emerge.
