Linda Berretta presents Dawn to Dusk, a collection of landscape oil paintings that show the effect of light at the most beautiful times of night, sunset and sunrise. Nocturne paintings are often started in plein air and finished in the studio. “While I spend hours painting in the field, I particularly love the dramatic lighting during the dawn or dusk hours.” said Barretta. Whether depicting early or late light, this collection truly captures the changing moods and tones of the phases of the day.
A Sonoma County artist, Barretta lives and works in Healdsburg, Known for her vibrant use of color, she developed her impressionist style and skills through numerous hours of painting plein air and studying with master artists. Her works are exhibited throughout the country.
The Small Works Showcase on the stairway features Ebb and Flow by Marsha Connell. Rendered in oil, pastel and watercolors, this collection is imbued with the movement and flow inspiring the artist as she works direct from life. “It’s all about the dynamic of being in the moment and a selective process that gives plein air works that special fluid quality,” remarked Connell. Drawing on her background as a dancer, her paintings have a spontaneous quality that invites the viewer to join the dance and complete the vision.
