Barbara Brandel: Paintings on Display
September 1, 2016 - September 30, 2016| Free
Artist’s Statement: Art making has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. After studying figure drawing and textile art, and nearly thirty years as a fiber artist, I have a deep appreciation for the cultures and people of the world who used and still use their hand-crafted objects and textiles.
In my “Inside/Outside” series of paintings, I explore my world close-by, depicting objects in my life and studio, sometimes juxtaposed with the landscape just outside. Other paintings are homages to anonymous artisans and their hand-made works made throughout the world, or fragments of treasures from other cultures and times. The paintings are mixed media on paper. I use acrylic paint, chalk pastel, colored pencil, oil stick, and oil pastel.
Barbara Brandel’s paintings will be on display September 1-30, 2016, during regular library hours.
