Moments of Stillness: Paintings by Stephanie Thwaites

Event Tags:
Tue Nov 6, 10:00am to Thu Dec 6, 5:00pm |
Founders Room

"I find inspiration in nature — the freedom of its organic shapes, the endless variation of colors, the ever-changing light.

But I am also drawn to architectural and geometric forms — their order, structure, and alignment.

I work with oil and cold wax because they complement my love of rich texture and generous application of paint.

In these paintings, from representational to abstract, I strive to create dynamic space — a place that is intricate and layered, but also a place that feels restful and grounded.

It is important for me to find moments of stillness within a landscape of complexity and activity.

I am a graduate of the Yale University Fine Arts program, and have shown my work in many national and local juried shows and galleries.

My art is found in collections around the country and internationally.

 


The exhibit runs from Tuesday, November 6 through Thursday, December 6, and can be seen during Library open hours when the room is not in use.

 

Reception Wednesday, November 7 from 6-8pm
