February Gallery Open House-Heartland Artists Gallery
Gallery Open House with Joan Spohrer as Featured Artist
The theme of her show is New Works and Other Favorites, and this watercolor painting is titled, “Sabine.” For more information on this exceptional artist visit joanspohrerwatercolors.com.
Joan shares, "For me, painting expresses the world in ways photography cannot. Whether creating a landscape, figure, still life or abstract, an artist combines skill with tangibles – light, value, color, subject matter – as well as the intangibles of her own experience, point of view, memory and emotion, rendering a unique interpretation of each image, layering her own subtle purpose with each stroke. Why do I paint? To interpret a memory in a re-imagined way.
In my artistic journey I have been most satisfied to learn that an artist is, simply, one who creates. And I have learned to respond in a positive way to those who remark, “Even I could do that” by saying, “Yes, of course you could.”
Meet Joan at this event and other member artists at the Gallery. An afternoon of art, conversation, music, refreshment and more art!!!
