"Fields and Valleys" by artist Alexandra KassingArt Central Gallery features the work of artist Alexandra Kassing in July 2016 with her show "Fields and Valleys". The landscape exhibit features colorful images of flowing fields and valleys overlooked by majestic mountains.
"There is something about the rhythm and energy of an open field that continues to inspire me," says Kassing. "When I paint these scenes, I am trying to capture just a fleeting moment of nature's song."
Many of the works were completed on site "en plein air" to catch the immediate impression of the landscape. For these, Kassing works with quick, lively brushstrokes or palette knife to convey the energy of the scene.
Several of the paintings were done at her grandparents' Kansas farm where the artist first learned to paint. "My grandmother was a Kansas landscape painter and was my first serious art teacher. Working in her studio and in the wheat fields near her home, I felt her inspiration," said Kassing.
"Fields and Valleys" will be featured July 8-31st, 2016 at Art Central Gallery, 130 Central Ave., Summerville, South Carolina. The public is invited to a reception with the artist on Third Thursday, July 21, 2016 5-8pm. For more information visit: www.artcgalleryltd.com
