Paintings by Christine Hannegan
June 1 – July 31, 2022
9 am – 5 pm
(Please use the entrance at 1st and Davis Streets)
In this particular body of work, the artist chooses not to replicate the biota with precise accuracy but rather to evoke the essence of nature teeming with life.
As the viewer moves through the gallery one is surrounded by paintings which are lush, verdant, and dense with layers of pattern and hidden imagery. One can almost hear the rustling of unseen wildlife and breathe in the aromatic scent of evergreen and flowers.
