Atlas/Hudson River Valley
March 31 - May 6, 2018
Opening Reception Saturday, March 31st 4-6pm
The artworks in Christie Scheele‘s solo exhibition Atlas/Hudson River Valley takes the viewer on a walk through the Hudson River Valley’s open spaces from Albany south to Manhattan.
In this exhibition Scheele brings together paintings, drawings, printmaking and mixed media and explores the personal and collective connection between our lives today and our increasingly fragile environment. Scheele continues her immersion into open spacious landscape painting. Using soft lines Scheele allows the viewer to sense and experience a particular place in our local environment; the way the light
makes you feel as it changes during the day, how a place has it’s own color palette reflecting memory and process. Scheele’s use of color and atmosphere creates a suspended moment to experience the intangible power of nature.
