True To Nature
September Exhibit
September 1-30

In a diverse array of mediums the artists in River Gallery's September exhibit "True to Nature" convey with detail and highly realistic imagery their relationship with nature. Working on a miniature scale, California artist Christina Goodman's ultra-miniature acrylic paintings make a gleaming statement - her devotion for Italian Renaissance painting with a labor-intensive process of centuries-old frame design, gilding techniques and painting style. D. Langford Kuhn uses the Florida Everglades as her rich host for inspiration of a vast range of flora and fauna, depicting with detail her hand-painted and embellished porcelain pots. Connecticut oil painter Eleanor Miller's affinity for our primordial mother earth comes to us in her dreamlike images of the natural world.

October Exhibit
October 1-31

Brought together by a passion for their craft, the artists in our October show Connections find inspiration in the timeless resilience of humankind through its refuge in the spiritual, physical, and psychological. Tennessee artist Nancy Jacobsohn, uncovering her inspiration from Ancient Chinese, Indian, and Etruscan artifacts, seeks to capture the spirit rather than realistic portrayals for her guardian animal masks. North Carolina artist Lisa Klakulak finds her connection with fiber through humanity's long relationship with natural materials and the transformation over time and cultures creating contemporary pieces symbolizing the security and protection of structure. Georgia artist Scott Hill's mix of styles from the 16th Century Spanish Landscapes and 19th Century Romanticism serves as the influence for translucent paint layers over canvas or antique objects often depicting figures encompassed by their surroundings thus evoking a sense of meditative reflection.
