The Addison Center for the Arts is proud to present Expedition-Composition, an art exhibit of paintings by Mary Dorrell. The exhibit opens August 14 and continues through September 21, 2019. The public is invited to attend the artist reception on Saturday, August 17, 2019 from 2 to 4 pm, where we can all enjoy the rock and blues guitar of Joe Eddy Brown as we marvel together at Dorrell's artwork.
The exhibit features Mary Dorrell’s paintings that communicate her sense of adventure and wonder.
“Before starting a new piece, I ask myself, “ What drew me to that place or subject and what am I seeking to convey about the experience?” “Was it the storm that just passed, a dense wood or a stunning sunset?” “Was it a shared experience?” “Was it a memory?” But that is just one aspect, what draws me to create is a desire for connection and a sense of discovery. I open my heart and mind to allow the painting to flow to where it wants in telling the story. Each painting has a mind of its own and vibrates with its own energy. I feel compelled to create paintings that convey a taste of adventure, a response of emotion, and a bit of mystery.”
