The public were invited to enjoy the artist reception on Friday, May 17 from 7 to 9 PM.
The exhibit was a jewel box of small-scale landscapes. Each piece was an impressionistic keyhole glimpse of a dynamic vista.
Maureen McKee on "Nature’s Diversity":
"My show, Nature’s Diversity, celebrated the ever changing landscape that is a challenge and a reward to paint. Nature is a source of inspiration, for me, to explore and create. It is an adventure to view its scope. The variety of light, form, and color. The diversity of the seasons - the weather - the time of day may each change my perspective. The way a flower blooms or the way a tree bends .... piques my imagination. This invites me to explore a variety of techniques... from energetic brushwork, palette knife, to blended paint or heavy build up of textures. I work in oils and oil pastels... preferring one media or the other is dependent on the subject matter and my mindset when I start my journey into a new painting."
