“Travelogues:  Abstracted Landscapes Celebrating the Memory of Place”

Art Exhibit by Cheryl A. Gressani

Local artist Cheryl A. Gressani exhibits her paintings this month. Inspired by weather, water, aerial perspectives and landscapes, Gressani enjoys combining the essence of realism with abstracted ambiguity that permits ideas about the art to move within and beyond the painted planes. The works are primarily acrylics, but include a pastel and oil.
