Presenting “Both Sides Now: New Work by Virginia Donovan.” Donovan explains the dichotomy, “In the past couple of years, I have been working back and forth between contemporary painting in acrylics and more traditional landscape paintings in oils. While the two may seem totally different, I find that each inspires the other. In both genres, I am working with brush and knife and looking to affect texture. But it is more than that… The landscape paintings tend to be of places I have loved, that really spoke to me and added roots to my life. In the contemporary work, I am paying attention to feelings and events that have moved me and grounded me.” Ongoing through October 6, 2019.
