Surroundings…Capturing the Lowcountry on Canvas features works in acrylics and oil pastels by Robin Sue Ross. The exhibit will be on display this August and September at Art League.
Ross’ paintings are a colorful, impressionistic tribute to the Lowcountry landscape and its wildlife. Her bold colors and loose brushstrokes capture moments in time that might otherwise be overlooked. “My goal as a colorist is to successfully evoke a reaction of delight and wonder. I would hope that this exhibit reminds us to never forget to focus on the absolute beauty we have around us.”
Ross has degrees in visual arts and art education, and briefly taught public school art and gave private studio lessons before embarking on a 30-year career as a professional musician. She recently rediscovered her love of painting during the pandemic and is grateful to have done so amidst the beauty of the Lowcountry. “I feel that my ‘alla prima’ approach (all at once) more fully evokes the emotion of an ever-changing landscape.”
Surroundings…Capturing the Lowcountry on Canvas will be on exhibit August 16-September 24 at Art League of Hilton Head. An opening reception, free and open to the public, will be held Wednesday, August 17, 5-7pm.
