Banjie Getsinger Nicholas - "Echoes" - May 31 - June 26, 2013
Banjie Getsinger Nicholas has lived most of her life in rural northwest Connecticut. Nature has been the strongest influence in her life and art since early childhood. During those years her observation of birds, plants and insects formed the foundation of what excites her as an artist today.
Egg tempera painting and silverpoint drawing are her chosen mediums for interpreting the great strength and fragility of the natural world as she sees it. Banjie particularly enjoys using materials in their most natural state. Her silverpoint drawings in clamshells represent this best. The ground is a shell, hand selected from a beach by the artist and the drawing is done with a thin silver wire. Any color in the shell is natural color that often suggests the subject of the drawing. Banjie’s egg tempera paintings and silverpoint drawings are all created on a traditional gesso ground made from rabbitskin glue and marble dust.
Please join us on Friday May 31 from 6-9pm as we open Banjie Getsinger Nicholas - "Echoes".
Exhibition runs May 31 - June 26, 2013.
