Artists' Statements

Nancy Brittle finds inspiration in everyday events in the places she has lived and traveled. Her gestural, alla prima, plein air paintings allow her to capture the authenticity of a place. This selection of works takes the viewer from Virginia, to the Adirondacks and across the ocean to Greece. Nancy says, “My paintings in this exhibition are reflective of places and experiences I have loved as I have and continue to explore physically, emotionally, and artistically.”

Phyllis Northup says, “I am filled with gratitude for the many opportunities I have had to travel.” As she explores new places with her camera in pocket, she is always looking for that next painting. She observes the world with an artistic eye, looking for good compositions and taking note of the subtle differences in color, texture, details and lighting. Once back in her studio, she uses the photographs as a reference and inspiration for her paintings. She says about this collection, “I hope to share this rich visual experience, so come along with me on a journey to places near and far!”
