Patricia Rovzar Gallery has a new space and a new exhibition to christen it. This Thursday, July 7 from 5-8pm, art appreciators won’t want to miss an opening reception for “Rooted,” a collection of recent work by Jerri Lisk. Event organizers have this to say about the artist and her work, which will be on display through the end of July:
In “Rooted”, Jerri Lisk has painted landscapes and scenery that is not only familiar to her, but well loved. The works focus on the back roads and off-the-beaten path hideaways that for the many years she and her husband have explored, camped, hiked, paddled & embraced. The resulting paintings are reflections of her favorite places and convey a raw, seductive innocence of nature and its inherent beauty. The work is neither literal, nor conceptual, but it is transformative, as it beckons the viewer to embrace a different way in which to view natural scenery, and more specifically the landscape.
Jerri Lisk is known for her interpretive landscape paintings. Her unique process of applying acrylic paint on an aluminum surface is as important to the finished painting, as the compositions themselves. Patricia Rovzar Gallery has been representing her in Seattle since 2004, and we are honored to present this new body of work in conjunction with the opening of our new location.
